I know a Mum who laid on one side except when being examined as during some very strong contractions she was “passing out”. Because of spine problems it was decided not to use epidural.
Besides if they don’t get it in the right spot it doesn’t help anyway. I know a Mum they had 3 attempts and didn’t get any of them in the right place. Instead she ended up with a painful back – she didn’t have one until they did that.
