Pain Relief During Childbirth
Not all women wish to use pain relief during childbirth and whilst that's a brave decision to undertake, it's worth remembering that giving birth isn't easy, hence the term labour! Fortunately nowadays, with modern forms of pain relief, it needn't be just so painful as in days gone by.
Whilst you may decide to try having a natural and drug-free birthing experience, and many women do just this, it is never a bad idea to prepare for medical intervention just in case you change your mind or an emergency occurs. Simply by making plans allowing for change, you will be able to maintain an element of control during the wonderful experience of bringing a child into the world.
Depending upon just how much intervention you want, there are many options available.
