Pregnancy and motherhood is a major milestone in the life of a female. Child birth is a painful process and pain relief during labor has always been associated with myths and controversies. Use of labor analgesia has gained wide spread popularity. For labor analgesia, epidural administration of local anesthetic agents and systemic (intravenous or intra- muscular) administration of opioids (narcotics) are mostly associated. Scholarly peer review is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal.
