Is there any alternative method besides an epidural to minimize pain during labor and childbirth?

Birthing classes are an alternative method. They give you lots of breathing techniques and alternatives not found with an epidural. Laboring in water is another tool to use since the pain is so much less when you're submerged. Some hospitals even allow you to give birth in the water, which would help with the pushing pain. Hypnobirthing is another trend that is becoming increasingly popular. There are plenty of pain control methods that aren't as severe as epidurals so talk to your doctor to better understand your various options.
