If the baby is not treated, there are many problems that may surface. For example, a prolonged decrease in the amount of oxygen to the brain could lead to permanent brain damage.

An epidural is something that many women have when they are attempting to avoid the pains associated with childbirth. However, there are some negative consequences that can be created when a woman has one. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

For example, an epidural can cause the blood pressure of the mother to drop significantly while she is going into labor. This could be harmful for the baby because it can affect the nutrients and oxygen that it is receiving from the placenta. It can also disrupt the process of waste removal that is necessary to keep the baby healthy during the delivery process as well.

Another issue that this can cause is a change in the baby’s own heart rate. Because the baby is not receiving the amount of oxygen that it needs, the heart rate could change dramatically. This could result in the need for the baby to be born immediately via c-section.

If the baby is not treated, there are many problems that may surface. For example, a prolonged decrease in the amount of oxygen to the brain could lead to permanent brain damage. It is also possible that fetal death will occur. While epidurals are common, there are concerns that should be discussed with your doctor before having one administered.
