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.
