Labor and Epidural, Health Channel

Dr. Jason James, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist Health South Florida, explains an epidural is a regional block. “The anesthesiologist or nurse is putting a needle in the spinal canal and infusing some anesthetic and pain medication in that area that is going to numb the lower part of the body.”

He also says it won’t make you paralyzed, but it takes away the sharp pain to ease the process of the contractions so you can feel more comfortable.
