Epidural ??

To all the moms who have had epidurals before or not ? I'm 25 weeks with fourth baby and I've never had a epidural just pethidine,  this time round im wondering if I will have enough time to have one and if it will be alot more beneficial than not having one !! Having had 3 natural births i would like it to be less painful if at all possible !!!!!


  • From what I’ve heard an epidural increases the risk of you needing an episiotomy as you won’t be able to push. I had one with my youngest as I had a c-sec and I couldn’t feel anything from my chest down. Literally couldn’t move a muscle it was an odd feeling. I don’t know if they give you a bigger dose for a c-sec but that was my experience. Good luck with whatever you decide! X
