The best time to get an epidural is when you are lying on your back and not moving. It takes about 30 minutes for the medicine to work after it has been injected into your spine. If you move or turn, this may cause discomfort in the area of your spinal cord where you have had the injection so try not to move at all during these 3-10 hours following delivery.
