The experience of obstetricians at Paarl Hospital with 2,251 epidural blocks for pain relief in labour is recorded. The incidence of 10.93% among the 20,590 mothers delivered can only be justified if adequate after-care is possible. The one maternal death recorded was avoidable and related to the performance of a procedure when adequate supervision was impossible. An epidural block should be performed only when such supervision is available for a minimum of 30 minutes.
