Wanna know The Truth About Epidurals? Plus A Contest!!

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

This month’s Ask the Doctors Monthly Feature tackles the myths associated with epidurals and informs moms on the truth about epidurals. There is so much misinformation surrounding epidurals and I found this article extremely insightful and chock full of great information.


(P.S. What a cute shirt! Want this shirt? Click here to buy.)

Our host, Dr. Sal Maya receives questions daily from moms on subjects ranging from fertility to pediatric questions. Each month, the doctor chooses a question that he feels has mass interest. Since the beginning of Ask the Doctors… It seems that the #1 questions on mom’s minds is on epidurals.

Some questions we’ve received are as follows:

I’ve always heard about epidurals, but I’m not really sure if it’s for me. What can you tell me about them? – Christine H.

I am so scared about having to get a epidural. It just seems soooooo scary. Does it hurt?- Kelly M.

I’ve heard that if I don’t get an epidural early on then I might not be able to get one at all. Is that true?- Marie S.

Definitely check out this month’s monthly feature. I really think that you’ll find it very useful.

Plus do you have a question for Dr. Sal Maya. Then feel free to submit your question here. You may find your question soon becomes a monthly feature for all moms to read about.
