PGP and Epidural??

0 replies

Hi mums

Wondering if anyone has experience getting an epidural and giving birth with pelvic pain? I have had a very bad pelvic pain since 2nd trimester and my midwife recently mentioned that its very tricky to do both together because with epidural you cannot figure out the birth positions and it can make your pelvic pain worse after birth.

Does anyone have any tips on managing both together?? They will likely induce me due to gestational diabetes and with induction they are more likely to give a pain killer (according to the midwife). Any tips or suggestions welcome.

Thank you.
