Hi! I'm new to the boards....I'm a mom of 8 (I'd prefer not to use my real name)... all girls! My oldest is 9 1\2 and I love them all so so much!
My question is about epidural safety after so many children. I am not talking about the general epidural vs natural childbirth debate. 7 out of 8 of my births I did get an epidural and loved it. With one baby (#6) I had a spinal done... My last labor got me thinking if such a great number of epidurals are safe for mom\baby during labor. I don't know why, but I have this pressing fear that too many epidurals can become dangerous. I haven't found anything online about it, and I have yet to bring it up to my OB since I haven't been there.... (longest period of time not preggers! A very strange feeling for me...)
I guess you can call me GGG
