Can someone tell me when they started offering epidurals in US hospitals? I am wondering because I know they were not available to my mother years ago.

They didn't have them when my mom was pregnant either (in Canada)..my little brother is 14 and they weren't available then..but I don't know when they started offering them.

They ask you before hand but dont give them right away, towards the end

J- I am not sure exactly when they started offering them, but I know my mother had one with my sister back in 1979. I also wanted to ask everyone who has had a child.....will the doc let you tell him/her when you are ready for the epidural when in labor? I am going to try to hack it out as long as I can, but if I get to my breaking point...I will want one.

lol be careful with that one Allison! Sometimes by the time you are screaming for the epidural they will tell you it is too late. =P
