Can I have an epidural with a tattoo on my back?
Marie, I was wondering whether if I can get an epidural even with a tattoo on my lower back. My friend said that it wasn’t likely, but it’s a tiny tattoo…I would like to know before getting to the maternity ward. Thanks in advance for your explanations.
Excellent question Michèle. You are right to ask before you go into labour! I check medical research, current standards and recommendations specifically concerning pregnant women. I am not really a tattoo expert in general! 😊 I met with two experts to learn more about the topic, so please read my article Tattoos, Piercings and Pregnancy which has a lot of information you will find interesting.
