I have not. I had 36 hours of labor. Went natural until about 31 hours but because my contracts did not have any spaces( they would rise fall a little and rise again. no resting periods at all) i ended up with an epidural. which wore off on half my body after about an hour so I still felt everything and eventually ended up with a emergency c-section at the 36 hour mark because of other issues as well but he did not have any harm from the epidural at all. He is perfectly healthy. Do note that some babies do have difficulty with feeding and breathing at the same time. Its something they have to learn. So sometimes they choke a little bit or breathe a little funny. Sometimes they do a weird breathing sound too when they are just hanging out. Doctor said it was common and they eventually grow out of it.
