Abstract:

Epidural analgesia, a cornerstone of pain management during childbirth, remains significantly underutilized in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) like Nigeria. This in-depth research article delves into the unmet needs for epidural analgesia among labouring women in Nigeria. It explores the prevalence of use, meticulously examines the barriers to access across various domains, analyzes the potential consequences for mothers and babies, and proposes comprehensive recommendations to improve access within Nigerian maternity care settings.
