The majority of women giving birth in the United States receive an epidural during labor and delivery; many others receive a spinal block. "The Epidural Book" fully explains anesthesia used during labor and vaginal delivery or C-section, with an emphasis on epidurals. Dr. Richard Siegenfeld answers pregnant women's questions, including: Who administers epidurals and spinal blocks and when? How does anesthesia affect both the mother and the baby? Under what circumstances should a woman avoid an epidural? What happens during the recovery period? What problems can arise? Written by an experienced anesthesiologist, "The Epidural Book" is lighthearted and informative. This easy-to-read guide helps an expectant mother prepare for her all-important day.
Richard Siegenfeld, M.D., is an assistant professor of anesthesiology at Hofstra University School of Medicine. He is also an attending anesthesiologist at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
