Epidurals and C-Sections Part II

On February 17, 2005 I posted a commentary (o.k., it was a bit of a rant) about a New England Journal of Medicine study of epidurals and c-section rates. My problem wasn't with the study itself, but with the media's gross misinterpretation of the study and extremely inaccurate headlines. has posted an analysis of the study. Upon reading it, I find that there were factual errors in my description of the study, though the errors do not change my conclusion. Hey, I only read the abstract, not the entire article (which is more than I can say for those headline writers).
