Question: How to prepare for painless delivery?
Answer: Epidural anesthesia is local anesthesia injected into the epidural space near the spine, to numb the spinal nerves and offer relief from the pain during labor. The drug is injected into the nerves and works by stopping the pain signals from reaching the brain.
Benefits of Epidural:-
1.) Are more effective than other pain-relief options during labor.
2.) Make movement easy and give you the strength to push out your baby.
3.) Can be administered at any stage of labor.
4.) Are very safe.
5.) Help you stay awake and alert during delivery
6.)Can be used to numb only the lower part of the body in case of a C-section.
7.) Help you get rest and stay focused, especially if you feel exhausted.
Epidurals are generally safe, but there some side-effects:-
1.) Epidurals can lengthen the second stage of labor.
2.) They can cause a drop in the blood pressure, making you dizzy and nauseated. In the case of a sudden blood pressure drop, IV fluids, oxygen, and medication may be given to you.
3.) Some women get a fever due to the epidural.
4.) Loss of excess spinal fluid, after the needle is inserted, can result in a headache.
5.) You can feel weakness in the leg muscles.
6.) Numbness in the lower body makes it difficult for you to sense the urge for urination. Thus a urinary catheter needs to be inserted.
7.) The chances of vaginal delivery reduce to some extent.
8.) Reduced muscle strength and the inability to push effectively during labor can lead to assisted or instrumental delivery using forceps and vacuum extraction.
9.) An assisted delivery requires episiotomy (a cut in the back of vagina) that needs stitches.
10.) Stopping the epidural in the later stage of labor can result in more pain and doesn’t make birthing easier.
11.) Epidurals can cause itching, which can be treated with antihistamines.
12.) You may experience pain or tenderness in the injected area.
13.) Slow breathing or drowsiness can be a side effect.
14.) The epidural tube can cause temporary damage to the nerve.
15.) Permanent nerve damage that can cause loss of movement or sensation in one or both legs, although rare, can be a major side-effect (8).
16.) A bruised feeling and possible infection around the skin where the catheter is inserted.
If the epidural anesthesia fails to block the pain entirely, the procedure might be repeated, or you will be offered an alternative method of pain relief. Hope this helps.
