The Epidural Book: A Woman's Guide to Anesthesia for Childbirth based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The Epidural Book is an easy-to-understand book that goes through the various options for pain relief during childbirth. Written by an anesthesiologist, it is very thorough in covering commonly asked questions such as, "How does an epidural work?", "Will it hurt?", "How long will it last?", "How will it affect the baby?", and "What problems can arise?" Most of the book is devoted to epidurals, but there is also information on spinals, walking epidurals, and general anesthesia. There's also a chapter on anesthesia for c-sections. On almost every page, there are cute diagrams which help to illustrate the various points. The Epidural Book is perfect for women who would like to educate themselves on the matter of pain relief before having their babies. I highly recommend it.
