Epidurals – Danger At Your Back

Many pregnant women think it is “ok” to have an epidural, after all who wants the pain? Although studies had proven that epidurals are dangerous for the mother and the baby.

Respiratory problems in babies, resulting from the mother’s epidural, continue to develop, and contribute to the growing population of kids with asthma.

Moms think they have an epidural for themselves, and that the epidural does not affect the baby.

They don’t think that that it affects the mom and her health too. They never question the doctor who suggests it, while in the last study of 2 million women who had epidural, something went wrong in 8 cases, and those women are not able to walk anymore.

Informed decision is key here. I don’t advocate not having an epidural per se. I advocate information. You can elect to have an epidural but know that study showed a percentage of it being ineffective for numbing the pain.

I don’t know any mothers-to-be who would’t want to be present to her baby’s first gaze, first breath, her baby’s first suckle on her nipple. And this is exactly what she would miss, numbed by the drug. What happens to our brain when epidural is administered? Blurring of mind, mis-coordination of movement, tiredness, loss of self-control, inability to think clearly. 

The pain of labor, that everyone is talking about, is controlled by the woman’s mind. If she feels safe , she can relax. If she feels unsure, she is tense and the pain is imminent. This is how our body works: Fear leads to tension which leads to pain.

With hypnosis, relaxation, breathing and visualizations, self-hypnosis and other techniques, offered in HypnoBirthing, horizons of possibilities of one-s mind move away. A pregnant mother’s mind is very powerful, loving and creative. Hormonal changes took place to prepare her ability to take charge and make her labor an enjoyable event, a normal progression in her life.

In natural labor, a woman goes through a series of hormonal changes, from which emerges her strength and maturity as a mother. She needs this time to learn to relax, and learn to pay attention to what really matters – her baby’s communications.

I know, that I can’t do much on my own. I am not a doctor, I am not a nurse, not even a doula to be  in the labor room and look into your eyes with a question: What do you really want to choose?

I educate as many mother as I can reach, and if you are listening, please spread the word about  epidural side effects and choose the power of your mind instead of drugs. It’s easy and it is fun!

The choice is not between the pain and comfort, the choice is between a possible irreparable damage to the health of your baby, and your power of your mind and the love of motherhood.

Think again! Be smart and take a long deep breath instead of the epidural.
