I’m seven months pregnant and I started to think about delivery. I want to be prepared for it but I’m afraid of pain very much. I know that epidural can help me but I’m not sure that I want it. What besides an epidural can you use to minimize delivery pain?

Many types of medication can ease pain during delivery. Epidural isn’t the only choices, of course. You can choose local anesthetic. It may be used to numb the vaginal area if you need an incision to extend the opening of the vagina. Various analgesics and narcotics may be injected into a muscle in the thigh or buttock or given through an intravenous catheter. They decrease the perception of pain for two to four hours.
