@Agni3 – I don’t think that a pain pump is quite the same as an epidural. I had an epidural with both of my children and would totally recommend it to any woman in her right mind! There are some side effects, but they are hardly even an issue. My blood pressure dropped some and that’s all.
Regardless, with a pain pump the device that the drugs are inserted through is actually implanted near the place where the pain comes from (like a back pain pump), and I think it’s pretty permanent. It’s a little confusing, but I don’t think this particular pain pump is what you’re after. Good luck with the new little one! Hope all is well!
