    Default Re: When is it too late for drugs!

    Sometimes it's too late for an epidural in terms of by the time they get it rigged up get an anesthetists, I'm pretty sure you need monitoring and a cannula with an epi in case you have a bad reaction? And by the time all that's sorted you've given birth

    Pethadine you can't have too late in labour because it can make the baby sleepy.

    Gas you can get at any time often it's already in the room you just need to ask for it.

    Good idea to discuss with your .MW/OB because hospitals vary.
