In brief: No limit

Epidurals could theoretically be given over and over or many years.
But eventually they might become harder to achieve as scar tissue built up.

In brief: Frequently

The simple answer is that they can have it as many times as they want.
Practically, the question is how often do you want a big needle in your back. The use of epidurals for multiple childbirths is common in the us. The use of epidurals for multiple operations as part of a regional technique is also fairly common. Hope this answers your question.
