In Part II of our six-part video series with Dr. Sarah Buckley, we weigh the benefits and risks of using an epidural for pain management in labor.
Our naturally occurring hormones of labor also act as pain relievers.
Together with Dr. Buckley we discuss how these work, how an epidural can effect our hormones, and ways to close the gaps when we do need an epidural.
We do want to honor those that chose to have an epidural. No one should ever suffer in birth and sometimes an epidural is the right choice.
However, knowing all of the benefits and risks, will help you weigh whether an epidural is right for you.
