Pain management for labour and delivery

Pain management treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore

You can manage labour pain easily if you are aware of specific methods or medications that help to relieve the pain. You can prepare well if you are aware of the self-care methods and adopt some of the following self-help methods.

  • Learn to relax and take deep breaths.

  • Keep moving your body as your position may affect the labour. Keep walking or kneeling to make the labour happen at a faster pace.

  • You may keep your partner, a close friend, or a family member to support you. You may tell your partner to massage you.

  • You may ask your doctor questions about something you are eager to know.

  • Take a bath. Bathing helps your baby find the right position to quicken the delivery.

Other clinical ways to relieve the pain are safe for both mother and baby.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a tasteless and odourless gas that can be inhaled. It is effective to relieve pain. You can take the gas using a hand-held face mask, and it starts working within a minute. You can use nitrous oxide continuously during labour and even regulate its amount. Pain management treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore is available at Manipal Hospitals, visit today.


Opioids can be given through an intravenous catheter or injected through the muscle. It can help you relax, and you will feel comfortable after taking it.

Local Anaesthetic Injection

Local anaesthesia may have to give to make an incision to make the opening of the vagina bigger. The anaesthesia is applied to repair the tear after delivery. Anaesthesia can also reduce pain between the anus and vagina before delivery. The local anaesthesia is given into the vaginal wall near the pudendal nerve and starts working within 10 to 20 minutes.

Epidural Block

Although the placement of the epidural block is not painful, it can cause some discomfort due to the numbness of the skin before the block. Epidural catheters are placed in the body's lower back, allowing a pump to drop pain medicine. Based on the usage of anaesthesia, the medication starts to work within 15 minutes.

Since an epidural is given during labour, the healthcare provider will ask you the best time to give an epidural during labour. You may get the epidural soon after the labour starts or when labour continues. However, an epidural may not be suitable for you if you have had major surgery on your lower back or have suffered an infection.

An epidural effectively reduces pain in the lower part of the body without affecting the labour much. You will feel stretching and pressure even after getting this. Book an appointment at our multi-specialty hospital today.

Spinal Block

A spinal block is used during a C-section. With the help of a spinal block, pain can be reduced when delivery is expected. A spinal block is applied by injecting medications below the spinal cord, and it starts working quickly and is adequate to relieve pain for a couple of hours.

You will awake even though a spinal block is applied, and it can reduce the pain entirely for a couple of hours.
