This is an episode which I originally did almost 2 years ago so I figured it was time to update it! In this episode you’re going to learn all about your options for pain management during labor. And here’s the thing: everyone who’s having a baby needs to know all the options - whether you plan to get an epidural or you plan to have an unmedicated birth or you’re somewhere in between.
For those who choose an unmedicated birth there are many tools at your disposal such as massage and movement. If you opt for a non-epidural medicated birth it’s good to know what choices you have and what the pros and cons are of each. Even if you plan to get an epidural there will still be a time when you have to manage pain without it. I recommend that people stay home as long as possible so that you’re in good active labor by the time you get to the hospital and to reduce the chances of unnecessary interventions. This means that everyone, medicated or not, will need to familiarize themselves with tools and techniques to manage pain.
