Medication for Childbirth (anesthesia and analgesia)

Epidural anesthesia is the most common pain management tool utilized in hospitals today. Epidural is a regional anesthesia meaning it numbs a specific area. With epidural anesthesia you can still move your legs although you may not be out of the bed. Most women will still feel the urge to push when completely dilated.

Intravenous medication such as Nubain is also available for the laboring woman. Nubain is a analgesic that can be given in the muscle or the vein. The midwife can order both an epidural and Nubain if the woman chooses a medicated birth.
