How to Reduce Discomfort at Your Epidural Site
One Move to Eliminate Lower Back Pain at Your Epidural Site
I heard the obstetrician say that she thought there would be time to try again.
The spinal tap had been inserted, but minutes later I could still feel everything, including the waves of contractions that kept coming, as I tried to lie still. ?
The spinal tap didn’t take. They would have to sit me back up on the operating table in order to try an epidural next, the anesthesiologist explained.
This scene unfolded at my first C-section 4.5 years ago.
Almost two years ago, I had an another Cesarean. Elective, this time, with a spinal tap that did it’s intended purpose without needing a second try.
Interestingly, I couldn’t sense the spot where the first spinal tap and epidural were inserted. But, after the second C-section, I most definitely can pinpoint that location on my lower back.
There are times in my day when I feel like that spot is stiff or needs to adjust.
I know from coaching hundreds of postpartum people who’ve had vaginal and Cesarean births with epidurals and spinal taps, that this is common. You feel this spot, too.
Your clients or patients? They feel this spot, too. ?
In this 2-minutes-long video, I’m giving you ONE simple movement that feels amaaaaazing on that spot in your lower back that feels clunky, achy, tight or sore.
