Painless Childbirth: Benefits of Normal Painless Childbirth

Becoming a mother is the start of a wonderful journey. The incredible bond you shared with your unborn child over the nine months culminates with the arrival of your bundle of joy. However, crossbreeding often involves an excruciatingly painful childbirth process. Future mothers often fear natural birth. While before, an elective caesarean was the only alternative available, modern medicine has brought about revolutionary advancements that can help reduce pain during childbirth to an acceptable level. Painless childbirth or “epidural analgesia” is nothing more than an option for a normal childbirth.

What is a painless childbirth?

A painless childbirth can be achieved using a form of regional anaesthesia that relieves pain during natural labour. Epidural anaesthesia is given by injection into the mother’s lower back. The medicine takes about 10-15 minutes to work. This is a good option for women with lower pain bearing capacity, who would otherwise opt for a Caesarean section.

How is epidural anaesthesia given?

You may need to sit with your back arched while you receive the epidural. The doctor will catheterize your lower back by inserting a thin tube into the lower part of your spinal cord. The needle is withdrawn and the catheter is taped in place so that epidural anaesthesia can be given during labour. The epidural is given after you are in active labour and works by numbing your pelvic area and anything below it while you remain conscious. However, you should know that it does not offer 100% pain relief.

The advantages of Painless childbirth give women a chance to have a natural childbirth, with very little intervention. It has helped reduce the number of elective Caesarean sections in India.

Women have the option of having an epidural during labour if they feel they are unable to take the pain, are exhausted from pushing, or in an emergency that may require an urgent Caesarean section.

By relieving the pain, it allows the mother to focus on the birth. It helps with relaxation and can prevent the exhaustion and irritation most women experience during childbirth, reducing the risk of developing postpartum complications.

It helps the baby to descend easily by relaxing the pelvic and vaginal muscles.

It also helps lower the mother’s blood pressure, which can otherwise reach dangerous levels during labour.

Risks or side effects of the epidural

Although the epidural is completely safe for mother and baby, it can leave you with side effects such as fever, breathing problems, nausea, dizziness, back pain and chills.

The new mother may experience severe migraine headaches due to an epidural leak in the spine. Labour may take longer than not otherwise when an epidural is used.

The mother may have difficulty urinating after childbirth. In this case, a catheter can be used.

It causes numbness in your entire lower body, and it may be a while before you can walk.

In cases of wandering, if the mother’s blood pressure drops, it can also cause the baby’s heart rate to drop. In extreme cases, an emergency caesarean may be performed.

Bottom Line: A few other forms of painless deliveries that you can choose from include using Entonox, a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a breathing mask, and water birth. Painless delivery using an epidural has helped many women experience a positive natural delivery. You should only decide to do this after discussing the process with your gynaecologist and weighing the pros and cons thoroughly.
