An epidural is the most common form of pain relief given in labor and birth. Women who choose epidurals do so for a variety of reasons. Some women knew that they wanted an epidural early on while others didn't make the decision to have an epidural until labor began.

Each of these birth videos feature an epidural used in some format. You can see how the epidural works for pain, including complicated labors.
