What is an epidural?




Epidural is for pain relief during labor. It’s given by anesthesiology
or certified CRNAs (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) in a
catheter into women’s back and will provide pain relief for the entire
labor and delivery.

Dr. Ellen Schwartzbard, Obstetrician and Gynecologist with Baptist
Health South Florida, describes with a graphic how epidural works.
