May Almighty Allah bless u and ur family. Epidural analgesia for the pragnency is absolutely safe. It is our common practice in Lahore. It was said by the pediatricians in the past that epidural causes fetal distress but There r lot of studies regarding epidural for labor analgesia. All r negative for fetal diatress. U may go for it fearlessly.

Walaikumassalam,

Epidural is safe analgesia until and unless gven by a safe anesthetist. Lumbar epidurals are easier and safer and can be done by every consultant anesthetist. Its the thoracic epidral which is tricky and not a cup of tea for the unskilled. Make sure the guy who prforms it onto you is a consultant. Not a medical officer but a person who has cleared fcps or mcps at least. Lumbar epidurals are safer and excellent for pain relief during labor and the best option available at the moment. I hope you go through this pregnancy pain free after it. Ask your gynaecologist to arrange an anesthetist. Complication rate for it is also pretty low so do not worry.

Main complication in lumbar epidural is a dural tap. Which results in post dural punctural headache or PDPH. I hope you go through this pregnancy safe and sound. All prayers with you and your baby.

Respected Doctor, Epidural Analgesia for child birth is absolutely safe. But it should be administered by a qualified Anesthetist.
