The Epidural Book

A Woman's Guide to Anesthesia for Childbirth

The majority of women giving birth in the United States receive an epidural during labor and delivery; many others receive a spinal block. The Epidural Book fully explains anesthesia used during labor and vaginal delivery or C-section, with an emphasis on epidurals.

Dr. Richard Siegenfeld answers pregnant women's questions, including
• Who administers epidurals and spinal blocks and when?
• How does anesthesia affect both the mother and the baby?
• Under what circumstances should a woman avoid an epidural?
• What happens during the recovery period?
• What problems can arise?

Written by an experienced anesthesiologist, The Epidural Book is lighthearted and informative. This easy-to-read guide helps an expectant mother prepare for her all-important day.

About the Author

Richard Siegenfeld, M.D., is an assistant professor of anesthesiology at Hofstra University School of Medicine. He is also an attending anesthesiologist at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

Endorsements

"I am a doctor with three children delivered under epidural anesthesia, and I have devoted much of my life’s work to treating chronic pain. I was particularly impressed by Dr. Siegenfeld’s elegant explanations."
