is this very painful?

The anesthesiologist applies a topical freezing so the only thing you may feel is a slight pressure when the needle is inserted.

I had ALL back labor with my child, and NOTHING felt worse than the back labor,.,.,.The epidural was more scary to me than painful, and now that I am pregant with our second I will gladly take an epidural and a c-section over anything..it was very easy for me and was very easy afterwards...had my baby out with me showing him off 6 days after the c-section...I have not been to my 1st doc appt, and its a different doc than before, but I am hoping we can go c-section again

im the same as stacy. I had an emergency c-section, (after 13 hrs of back labour with NO drugs) I didnt even feel them put the epidural in. it wasnt scary at all, neither was getting the section, it was all such a relief.I think that I am definitely going section again for the next one lol.I found the recovery easy too I also was out like 4-5 days after showing off my son.,and I think it would have been much harder if i had of delivered v____ally, (although i was very close, fully dialated and everything,4 hrs of pushing)

nope not at all if you are sitting up with a pillow in front of you bent over its a small pinch then just pressure thats all its really a blessing!

No, it isn't very painful. It is just the idea of a needle going into your back that makes it really scary feeling. I just felt a sting and a little pressure. It was a life saver for me cause I was in labor like 24 hours. After the epidural, I felt nothing. Had a c-section and felt only a little pressure when getting baby out. It was over with quick. Thank God for whoever invented the epidural. I think I would have died without that great relief for my labor pains.

I also just had a c-section 3 weeks ago. No pain and mine was elective. Would definately recommend it. I was walking around and quite mobile after 2 days and out of hospital in 4 days.
