Labor and Delivery With Pain Medication:
Minimal Intervention Pain Management
Nitrous oxide, sometimes referred to as laughing gas, is a decades-old proven method to manage pain during labor. It allows you to have control over how much pain relief you need and when you need it.
IV Pain Medication
You can choose IV pain medication to dull your pain, which will not interfere with the progression of labor or your ability to push during delivery.
You can have peace of mind that if you need more pain control, you can get an epidural with virtually no waiting. Epidurals block the pain almost instantly. At hospitals, more than half of the women giving birth choose epidural anesthesia.
