If this was your first child, how do you know it didn't work? The point of an epidural is to reduce the pain, not remove it entirely. I'm sure the medical staff told you this at some point.

trust me, if it worked, she would know. epidurals are strong. when i gave birth to my son, i didn't feel any pain at all. i was still able to slowly move my legs, but nothing hurt. i ended up with a second degree tear and didn't feel it at all when it happened

Epidurals are designed to limit pain, not eradicate it. Women experience pain on different levels; sometimes childbirth is pretty easy and painless, but mostly it is a very excruciating experience. Since this is your first child, not only are you not used to the pain of childbirth, but you also seem really uneducated when it came down to the moment of your baby's birth. You always have to expect that something won't go right, but if you were one of the "lucky" few that epidurals don't work at all, then yeah, your life sucks.

If it's your first child birth, how did you know it didn't work? You got no benchmark. It could be ten times worse without it, but you wouldn't know.

99.99% sure you're probably wrong. Just because you don't think it didn't work, doesn't mean it didnt. With my epidurals, I could still move my legs and all that jazz, and could still tell when I had to push....but it definitely did cut down on the contraction pain. Epidural with the first 2, 100% pain med free the last 2.
