Labour Pain Management

Labour Pain Management

A common and unavoidable feature of childbirth, labour pain can be one of the most overwhelming and anxiety-inducing experiences for expectant moms. At Surya Hospitals, we recognise that proper birth pain management is essential for both the mother’s comfort and welfare as well as the baby’s safe delivery.

The Uterus’s regular contractions as it attempts to push the baby out of the birth canal are what produce labour discomfort. The size and position of the baby, the mother’s health and wellness, and the length of the birth are just a few variables that might have an impact on how much pain an individual experiences.

These include many different methods, including both pharmaceutical and non-pharmacological approaches, that can be used to control labour pain. In order to deliver the most effective and individualised pain management, we at Surya Hospitals believe in adapting our approach to each patient’s needs.

Pharmaceutical Pain Management

Utilising pharmaceutical painkillers to control labour pain is known as pharmacological pain relief.

  • Epidural anaesthesia is one of the methods of pharmacological pain treatment that is most frequently utilised. This entails injecting a local anaesthetic into the epidural area of the spine, which numbs the lower body and relieves discomfort during labour and delivery by numbing the bottom half of the body. Many expectant mothers choose epidurals because they are a highly effective kind of pain treatment. They might be administered at any point during labour, and they can even be combined with other painkillers.
    Intravenous (IV) analgesia is another alternative for pharmacological pain management. This entails giving painkillers via an IV line, which may assist lessen the degree of discomfort experienced during contractions. However, IV analgesia may not be appropriate for all patients and is less effective than epidural anaesthesia.

Pain Management without drugs

  • Natural pain reduction therapies including massage, hydrotherapy, and relaxation techniques are the main focus of non-pharmacological pain management techniques. Deep breathing exercises and muscular relaxation are part of breathing and relaxation techniques, which can help to lower anxiety and tension and encourage calmness during labour. These methods can be especially useful in the early stages of labour when pain is typically less severe.
    Additionally effective at relieving pain during labour is massage. This may entail a light massage of the tummy, hips, and lower back to ease tension and encourage relaxation.
    In order to relieve labour pain, heated water is used in hydrotherapy. Women who are experiencing back discomfort may find this to be especially helpful because the warm water can assist to relax and soothe the muscles.
    Our skilled obstetricians and midwives at Surya Hospitals will work closely with you to create a custom pain management strategy that may include a combination of pharmaceutical and non-pharmacological methods.

Collaboration and effective communication between the patient and the healthcare staff are essential for the successful control of labour pain. At Surya Hospitals, we value creating a welcoming environment where patients may voice their concerns, ask questions, and actively participate in decisions regarding their pain management.

Our group of expert obstetricians, midwives, and anaesthetists is committed to giving our patients the best treatment possible. Since each patient is different, we strive to provide individualised care that takes into account each person’s medical background, personal preferences, and stage of labour.
