Are there time limits on when epidurals can be administered?

I'm not sure if this would be a hospital policy thing or a medical thing. Is it possible to get an epidural at 9cm or does it have to be administered earlier on?

How can an epidural effect the labour and childbirth process?

I've heard that epidurals can slow down labour and even stall it. I've also heard that it can cause complications and increases the risk of c-section.
