Cries due to labour pain are not unusual. They frighten a
new to be mother and leave unpleasant memories and sometimes
mental trauma, since year and year pregnant women tolerated
this pain because there was no safe way of pain relief in
the past. Now due to advancement in Anaesthesia it is
possible to have painless delivery.
WHY IT PAIN DURING DELIVERY?
These labour pains are due to contraction of uterus,
stretching of ligament and muscles while child passes
through birth passage.
WHAT IS NEEDED?
Pain or the contraction of the uterus? Contraction of the
uterus causes pain. We can make these contraction painless
without reducing the contraction. We deposit Anaesthetic
medicines near the nerves that take pain sensation from
uterus to brain. This would numb the feeling of pain without
affecting contraction of the uterus.
We put small tube or catheter less than 2mm size through
needle in between two vertebra bone at back. Putting tube is
almost painless it will take 5-10minutes and another 15-20
minutes for action of drugs.
1) Because of pain, mother secret hormones which give
distress to baby. Epidural analgesia makes mother and baby
2) It brings down high B.P which some mother has.
3) Good for patient who have heart disease.
4) Delivery is fasten.
5) If require Caesareian can be done with same tube.
6) Caesareian can be avoided for patient who wants
Caesareian for fear of pain.
This epidural injection is to be given when you arc in
active delivery process (labour) i.e. When uterus mouth open
up to 3 to 4 cm.
It does not affect the baby. The baby is active and not
drowsy, because the drugs used, act only on the nerve paths
and not on the uterus or the baby.
The contractions remain normal, you can feel them, but they
are painless. If at all, they arc now more coordinated, and
delivery process faster.
Majority of the time, delivery is normal and sometimes
instrumentation like forcep or vaccum is needed.
It does not have any permanent effect on the nerves. It acts
only for about 100 minutes and is to anaesthesist present
with you will extend it as and when needed. There are no
after effects for the next pregnancy.
