Welcome to pain relief options during childbirth

Severity of pain during childbirth

Bhavani Shankar Kodali MD

It is hard to predict how much pain you will have until you go through labor. Some women have tolerable, controllable levels of pain, while others may benefit from some form of pain relief. Many non-medical techniques exist that can help the pain during labor, including breathing and relaxation techniques, warm showers, massage, supportive nursing care, position changes (standing, sitting, walking, rocking), and using a labor ball to name a few. The proponents of non-medicated childbirth pain relief methods claim these methods to be effective in overcoming pain, and make labor and delivery a pleasurable experience. For additional information on these methods, women are encouraged to visit their websites.  A birthing educator can also help you with more information. Some women on the other hand seek a medicated form of pain relief methods.
