It depends on how fast the baby is coming. If you're having a long drawn out labor and are holding at 8-9 cm you may still have an epidural but if the contractions are close, powerful and you feel the need to push there just isn't time. I waited too long to ask for the epidural but I'm really glad I did because I didn't take any chances with my back or nasty side effects.
