Will I be able to push if I have had an epidural?

Part of the professional''s role in over-seeing your labour is to try and accurately time things. If you have had an epidural, your midwife should ensure that ''top-ups'' have worn off at least a little in time to let you feel when you need to push. If for some reason you are still numb, it will all still happen, the difference is that as you cannot feel contractions, the midwife will have to advise you when to push. Co-ordination of this may take a little longer but your baby can still be born normally.
