thinking about having another baby. I had an epidural during my first but afterwards i had REALLY bad back pain, my question is if I had a second and ended up using the epidural again would the pain get worse?

  • I had an epidural with both deliveries and had bad back pain after the first one (the dr. screwed up and ended up having to stick me 7 times) the pain was no worse after my second one. I can still feel exactly were my first one was though and it is still painful. My oldest son is 4 1/2.

  • would you consider delivering naturally?

  • The after-effect of an epidural can last for a year for the mother and a lifetime for a child. I believe that there is a strong relationship between an epidural rate of over 90%, and the rising rate of children on the Autism spectrum.
