Background: Findings a simple, lowcost and safe method for delivery is of great importance. Objective: To determine the duration of active phase and the second stage of vaginal delivery with epidural anesthesia. Methods: In a randomized clinical trial 36 patients were studied. 18 patients underwent epidural anesthesia as case group and 18 others with no anesthesia as control group. The duration of the active phase and the second stage of both methods and apgar score for both groups were compared. Findings: The duration of the active phase was less in the epidural anesthesia group (155.45±37.3 vs 169±48.14 min) where as the duration of the second stage was longer (78.18±22.29 vs 58.64±17.57 min). The apgar score second and C/S rates were the same in both groups. Conclusion: Vaginal delivery with epidural anesthesia is painless and safe.
