Caption

Epidural anaesthesia. Gloved hands of an anaes- thetist inject an epidural anaesthetic into a pregnant woman's spine before childbirth. The local anaesthetic is injected into the epidural space around membranes surrounding the spinal cord. This numbs the lower half of the body when it is administered into the lower spine. It is widely given to relieve the pain of childbirth. Gloves help maintain a sterile environment.
