A new-to-me blog that Bellies and Babies linked to for the post “If you give a woman an epidural” (based on the “If you give a mouse a cookie” book). I’m just going to link to the whole blog, because there are several posts worth reading (but I’ll warn that she does use a bit of profanity in some of the further-down posts). If you only read one post, read “If you give a woman an epidural” because it is an accurate portrayal of some of the side effects that can happen when a woman gets an epidural — excess fluid, need for a catheter, etc. The blogger is a labor nurse, so she sees this stuff happen all the time.
