What Is an Epidural In Pregnancy?

Labour can be very painful, unbearable even, for some mothers. So, if you are thinking of getting an epidural to help you cope with the intense pain, then you are not alone. Observations have shown that more than 60% of women delivering in hospitals opt for an epidural during labour and delivery. Understanding the concept of Epidural? An epidural is an anaesthetic that numbs the body making it unable to feel any sort of sensation or pain. How Does It Work? This anaesthetic is injected into the space around the spinal nerves called the epidural space in your lower back by an anesthesiologist via a catheter. The process of numbing begins within 10 to 30 minutes. The catheter remains in the epidural space during labour and delivery to continually provide the medication when needed.
