Someone thought I "had an opinion"

Recently I had a mom from one of my birth classes tell me she thought I "had an opinion" about epidurals in labor...that I was biased against them.  I've been mulling it over in my head, and it occurred to me that I'm not biased against them, I'm biased against their docs telling them they "really like epidurals" and "don't take a class because you're just going to get an epidural."  I don't have a problem with epidurals as long as the family is making a choice and not being told what to do, often times uninformed.  So, get your facts and make the right choice for yourself.
