Subject:  epidurals are blessings
Epidural is an anesthesia given to you though tiny IV in your lower back. This anesthesia numbs your pelvic area and legs. Epidurals allow you to not feel the pain while still being alert, awake, and able to push during labor and delivery. The doctor will put a tube between your back bones and shove it down a bit. The tube will be connected to a pump. If the pump runs dry, the doc can inject more drugs by a syringe. According to me Epidurals are the most wonderful blessing on this earth! It numbs you totally from the waist down, so no, it isn' t painful at all. But I had backache from my pregnancies for a few days after delivery.

Subject:  opt for natural birth
No, I did not have epidurals during my pregnancy. My sister-in-law delivered a baby boy last month. She was given a dose of epidural. In her case it was local anesthesia in her back. Her abdomen, back and legs were numb. She took long time to push out the baby. When I delivered my baby, I chose not to have an epidural. I went all natural way. I was scared of pain, of course. I could feel the pain, the contractions and so it was easier for me to push the baby out. In less time my baby was out. My sister-in-law told that she did not feel any sensation in her lower half part of the body. She told me that she will opt for natural birth without any medication next time.

Subject:  labour period may slow down
I had epidural during my delivery. My doctor came into the labour room and explained everything to me. I did not plan for epidurals but then as I was feeling nervous my doctor asked me if I would like to opt for epidurals. There can be several complications. A labour period may slow down as you may not feel the contractions and will not know when to push. Most of the time an anesthesia allows you to sense when to push but still there is a risk. With mine pregnancy it went quite well. It hurt a lot when doctors took away the tape attached to my back to take away the needle. I could feel the pressure after having an epidural.

RE:Good Gyne in North Delhi
Hey rachna i am confused as in why you want to meet a gynae for your son you should instead go for an paediatrician. And gynae is for girls and women so i dont think he/she might be able to help out your son on medical issues.... - Richa [View Message]
