Epidural Pain Relief for Labor and Delivery

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout helps women understand and prepare for an epidural, which is a form of anaesthetic commonly used for pain relief during labor and childbirth. It explains what epidural anesthetic is, and uses simple text and illustrations to provide the patient with brief step-by-step explanations of how the procedure is done. The document lists possible side effects of an epidural, and identifies when the mother should not have the procedure, listing the health conditions for which they should tell their doctor or nurse.
