Epidurals and emergency Caesareans


In the event of complications (an unexpected Caesarean for example), an epidural prevents the need for pain relief to be administered intravenously.

"If, due to complications, an emergency Caesarean is required, it's better if the mother is already under epidural instead of having to be given an intravenous injection."
