In preparation for the birth of your child, the Grand View Hospital Department of Anesthesia requests that you watch the video, “Epidural Anesthesia.” The presentation should answer most of your questions related to having an epidural procedure, the most preferred anesthesia option offered at Grand View Hospital. Other common questions related to anesthesia are answered on our Anesthesia Frequently Asked Questions page.
(A video does not take the place of having a conversation with your physician).
The expectant mother will be asked to fill out a pre-op anesthesia patient medical history form that will be sent out with a maternity questionnaire. The anesthesia consent form is signed when the expectant mother is admitted to the labor floor and is considering an epidural.
If you have additional questions, please call the Grand View Hospital Anesthesia Department at (215) 453-4809.
