Description

The controversy over whether epidurals increase the risk of cesarean has raged since the 1970s. This article provides a history of the early observational research designed to answer this question and an in-depth analysis of the most recent randomized control trials. Based on the research, the author concludes that we cannot assure women that epidurals do not increase the risk of cesarean.

Participants can earn 0.5 Lamaze Contact Hours credit upon successful completion.

Objectives

Demonstrate knowledge of how epidurals affect outcomes of birth
I. Identify, understand, and communicate knowledge of appropriate research sources

HENCI GOER, award-winning medical writer and internationally known speaker, is an acknowledged expert on evidence-based maternity care. Her first book, Obstetric Myths Versus Research Realities, was given Lamaze International President’s Award in recognition of its value as a resource for childbirth educators. Its successor, Optimal Care in Childbirth: The Case for a Physiologic Approach, won the American College of Nurse-Midwives “Best Book of the Year” award. Goer has also written The Thinking Woman’s Guide to a Better Birth, unique in that it gives pregnant women access to the research evidence. Goer has written consumer education pamphlets and numerous articles for trade, consumer, and academic periodicals as well. Nearing completion, Goer’s latest project is Childbirth U, a website that will sell narrated slide presentations at modest cost to help pregnant women make informed decisions about care.
