Epidural for pain management at the Royal Womens Hospital Lock Rss


Has any one ever been received an Epidural at the Royal Womens?
Did you have to wait long for an anesthetist to arrive?
Was this an extra cost?

Thank you

Hey. I've never done it yet, but I'm going to give birth soon, and I'm afraid of pain, so it seems like a good way to reduce it. But I read a lot of info, and there are a lot of different opinions about that procedure. Someone says that it's the best was to give birth and avoid pain, and someone says that it can be dangerous for a woman. A friend of mine had to sing documents, that she is responsible for that decision and will not complain in case if any unexpected things.
I've never had that type of anesthesia, but my sister did. She said that she didn't pay extra money for it, but she is so satisfied that she decided to do it because the whole process was painless. What about me, I'm not going to do it, because I am afraid that something will go wrong.
