Did you go through this when you where in labour, pls share your experience.....
When women in labour hear epidural or epidural anesthesia they kind of panic with though of how much it might hurt and hoping it will not cause any form of damage to there marrow.
WHAT IS EPIDURAL ANESTHESIA?
Epidural anesthesia is a regional anesthesia that blocks pain in a particular region of the body. The goal of an epidural is to provide pain relief, rather than anesthesia, which leads to total lack of feeling. Epidural block the nerve impulses from the lower spinal segments. This results in decreased sensation in the lower half of the body. Epidural anesthesia is the most popular method of pain relief during labor.
WHAT BENEFITS OF EPIDURAL ANESTHESIA?
Allows you to rest if your labor is prolonged.
By reducing the discomfort of childbirth, some women have a more positive birth experience.
Normally, an epidural will allow you to stay alerted and remain an active participant in your birth.
If you deliver by cesarean, an epidural anesthesia will allow you to stay awake and also provide effective pain relief during recovery.
When other types of coping mechanisms are no longer helping, an epidural can help you deal with exhaustion, irritability, and fatigue. An epidural can allow you to rest, relax, get focused, and give you the strength to move forward as an active participant in your birth experience.
The use of epidural anesthesia during childbirth is continually being refined, and much of its success depends on the skill with which it is administered. image credits #thedrugcode #epidural #birth
