Things you can do to make delivery more comfortable

You may be concerned about the pain you'll have during labor. There are things you can do to make your delivery more comfortable.

  • Using relaxation or breathing techniques
  • Local or intravenous drugs
  • An epidural (injection which blocks pain in the lower part of your body)
  • Spinal anesthesia (used when the delivery requires forceps)
  • Pudenal block (numbs the vulva, vagina and anus during the second stage of labor and during delivery).

Your doctor or midwife will help you decide what's best for you.
