Epidural Analgesia: The Tyranny of Meta-Analysis with Michael Klein

Dr. Klein will present the research on the role of epidural analgesia in normal birth and how it came that epidural analgesia is currently believed, based on flawed research, to have little or no adverse effects on birth, when its routine use has completely transformed birth-sometimes for the better and sometimes the opposite.

Attendees will come to appreciate how to read the literature on this important procedure and critically evaluate how it pertains to doulas and their clients.
