In brief: Yes you can

You can get epidural anesthesia with a herniated disc.
From the spine standpoint, a herniated disc does not contraindicate epidural anesthesia.

In brief: Yes

There are no danger in getting epidural anesthesia if you have herniated disk.
You should worry about positioning during labor which could make herniations worse.
