No sure if you remember or not but when I took my hospital tour the nurse told me that my Dr did his own epi's. I thought that was crazy and asked him about it at my next appointment and he said that he did do his own. He said that when he went into practice 30 years ago that you could not get an epi on the weekends if you went into labor because the anesthesiologist didn't work on the weekends. So he said him and his partner at the time went and did whatever it took to be able to preform their own epi's so their patients could have one if they wanted it. So he is licensed to do them.

Anyways, I remember some of yall thought that was crazy (as did I) but sure enough, he did my epi and it was great. The best part was that he came over as soon as I requested it and I got it within 15 minutes of requesting it.

Just thought I would share since I had never heard of an OB doing his own epis and I know a lot of you had not heard of it either.
