Staying Comfortable During Labor
All women are different in how they would like to manage discomfort during
the birth process. From natural pain management techniques to advanced
medication options, our supportive team of nurses make sure every woman
has the ability to choose how they would like to stay comfortable during labor.
Here are some common natural pain relief techniques:
- Walking/positioning techniques
- Relaxing, warm showers
- Deep breathing and mindfulness
Our trusted nurses can guide you if you have any questions.
At Winchester Medical Center and Warren Memorial Hospital, we support you
and your support team! We welcome extra support people such as family,
friends or doulas.
We also offer other pain management options, including epidurals. It is
important to learn about the benefits, risks and alternatives of all pain
management options prior to starting labor. We offer several childbirth
preparation class options to help new parents navigate these decisions.
