Scoliosis and Epidurals Don't Mix Well

I don't have scoliosis, so I had never really thought about how it might impact a woman in labor, or the effectiveness of an epidural. This post is really informative about scoliosis and labor:

I also never thought about how scoliosis could affect fundal height (what the doctor measures to see if your baby is growing properly), and how it could cause an inaccurate estimate of the baby's size.

If you have scoliosis, read this blog post and talk with your doctor or midwife about it.
