If I have a tattoo on my lower back?

Can I still get an epidural if/when I have a baby?

I've heard yes and no

  • I'm sure you can.

    They make you sign a form that shows that you are acknowledging the risks of going through with an epidural. They also explain it to you and then you sign the paper, if you are okay with the possible consequences.

    If they think that you are at automatic risk they will tell you right away. But in the end, it is really your choice.

  • As long as it's not fresh, but that's due to the risk of infection. If it's a healed tattoo, it shouldn't be a problem at all.

  • Depends on the anesthesiologist.

    the problem is they don't know what's in the dye, and when the needle goes in some of they dye could be transferred to your spinal fluid.
