Analgesia for physiological childbirth

In WHO recommendations (2018), a woman's request is considered an indication for the use of analgesia. When preparing for childbirth, every woman should have access to information about various methods of pain relief. We discuss this topic at the lectures of the Academy of Parenthood. It is important, together with the obstetrician-gynecologist and anesthesiologist, to choose the method of analgesia that will be optimal in view of the clinical picture. The patient must be aware of the mechanism of action of the chosen method of analgesia, be informed about contraindications, possible side effects and complications. This will help you to feel more calm and confident, and also not to feel excessive stress on the important day - the day of delivery. Of course, a woman can give birth without the use of medical methods of analgesia.


Regional methods of childbirth analgesia

  • spinal analgesia

  • epidural analgesia

  • spinal epidural analgesia

Painkillers are administered regionally (locally), so they relieve pain only in a certain part of the body, they are not absorbed into the baby's blood. From 60 to 90% of women in developed countries choose epidural anesthesia for childbirth.

General anesthesia is used only in some cases when performing a cesarean section.
