Answer: I had an interview recently to study midwifery in university and when asked this question this is the answer I gave. I grew up in a place of low economical background where very little women were educated, when they became pregnant they did not know the dangers of miss-using substances like drugs and alcohol which had an effect on themselves and their babies such as miscarriages and still births. This was when I first decided I want to help women like them to make the best choices for themselves and their babies throughout the pregnancy to bring their baby into the world as healthy as possible. Is this a good answer? I said something along these lines, i was quite nervous so I might have worded it differently.

Answer: No, an epidural will not help a Migraine attack. An epidural necessitates puncturing the area around the spinal cord which contains spinal fluid, and doing so may sometimes cause a cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leak that may result in headache.
