When my sister gave birth to her baby, I was always by her side. From the beginning of abdominal pain to the birth of the baby, my sister tossed all day and night, and was exhausted after giving birth to the baby. The so-called sister to heart, sister I look at her pain, naturally think of themselves. I don’t want to go through this when I have a baby! Isn’t there a way to deliver a woman out of the shadow of pain? After some attention, I found that now many hospitals have adopted the “painless delivery” method. It is said that this kind of delivery method can make expectant mothers no longer suffer the heartbreaking pain.

Analysis of six questions about painless childbirth

Q1: what is painless childbirth?

What we usually call “painless childbirth” is actually called “labor analgesia” in medicine. Is to use a variety of methods to reduce the pain of childbirth, or even disappear. Anesthetics or analgesics are commonly used in hospitals to achieve analgesic effect. The commonly used methods in clinic are epidural block analgesia (anesthetic injection) and nitrous oxide analgesia.

Painless childbirth can reduce the fear of maternal childbirth and postpartum fatigue, so that mothers in the most need to rest, the longest period of the first stage of labor to get “rest”, to the last moment of delivery will be more powerful.

After I decided to use painless childbirth, the doctor asked me whether I should use injection of anesthetics or nitrous oxide for analgesia. He said that injection of anesthetics has quick effect and strong controllability, which is the most commonly used method in hospitals. And nitrous oxide can only maintain the effect of a few minutes, when the production of non-stop suction. Because I was really impatient with the pain at that time, so I chose to inject anesthetics. It didn’t hurt that much after a few minutes. It really worked.

Q2: is painless delivery really painless?

It is very difficult to give birth in October, no matter what method is used. Painless childbirth painless is only relative, because the amount of anesthetics used during childbirth is very small, so the maternal can still feel the presence of uterine contractions. Painless childbirth is just trying to make the pain more tolerable. In fact, if the mental state of expectant mothers is in tension, fear, anxiety and lack of confidence, it will also increase their sensitivity to pain. Therefore, it is a good way for expectant mothers to make mental preparations to relieve pain.

I was afraid of pain since I was a child. When I heard about painless childbirth, I immediately asked the doctor to do it for me. But after the anesthetic went down, I still felt that my stomach was hard and uncomfortable. Fortunately, there was a midwife in the hospital to give me relief and breath, she let me breathe steadily, relax, don’t be so nervous, afraid, after a while, I really feel better.

Q3: does painless delivery affect the baby?

There are very detailed studies that confirm that epidural analgesia and anesthesia are safe for pregnant women and fetuses. Painless childbirth drug dosage is very low, only 1 / 10 to 1 / 20 of cesarean section operation, so into the maternal blood, the probability of passing through the placenta is very small, will not cause any impact on the fetus. Some data show that when the human body feels severe pain, it will release a kind of substance called catecholamine, which has adverse effects on both the maternal and fetal, and the blood and oxygen supply of the newborn may be affected. Therefore, painless delivery can also reduce the risk of fetal hypoxia.

I’m the anesthetic when the mouth of the palace is opened to three fingers. In the delivery bed, I curled my back into a bow as required, and the anesthesiologist told me not to move even when the pain came, so as to ensure a successful injection of anesthesia. The needle was successfully inserted into the gap between the vertebrae. After fixing the catheter, I went back to the bed. After about 10 minutes, my lower body began to feel numb, and soon I didn’t feel anything. I began to feel sleepy. About an hour later, my cervix was fully opened. At this time, I felt a little abdominal distention. Later, the production process was smooth. It’s great that the baby is born safely.

Q4: can all parturients choose painless delivery?

I believe many expectant mothers are eager to have a try after learning about painless childbirth. But although painless childbirth is good, it is not suitable for everyone. There are contraindications of vaginal delivery, anesthesia contraindications of expectant mothers can not use this method. If there is coagulation dysfunction, then this method can never be used. Expectant mothers with pregnancy complicated with heart disease, drug allergy and waist trauma should consult their doctors to decide whether they can have painless delivery.

I am an old woman with pregnancy induced hypertension. The doctor suggested that I choose painless childbirth for a long time. Because of early preparation, so the time of birth can be regarded as from leisurely. Generally, it takes 10-20 minutes for expectant mothers to prepare for epidural anesthesia between analgesia and anesthesiologists. It’s a bit late if they wait for the pain to be too bad to make a temporary request. It’s better to make a good choice in advance like me.
