The first time I heard the word "epidural" used in connection with this story was when the family and the surgeon were interviewed on "Good Morning, America". I didn't hear anything about an induction, however. The mother said on camera that this was her 3rd birth and her first epidural. I couldn't believe the spin the surgeon put on the birth--that the baby was responsible and referred to as a "blockage"! Can you imagine putting all that on a baby? I have been waiting to see if the papers and other media would pick up on the side effects of epidural anesthesia, but so far the only thing they're reporting on is "the blockage".
