Mother Baby - Pain Management

Many expectant mothers have concerns regarding the discomfort they may experience during their labor and delivery. Pain management is a primary focus for the staff caring for you and there are many options for you to choose from in managing discomfort.


A registered nurse will be with you from the time you are admitted throughout your birth experience to provide you with ongoing support and information that will assist you in achieving the level of comfort you desire. The nurses on the Mother Baby Unit are highly experienced in assisting patients with breathing and relaxation techniques that can be used to decrease your discomfort.


In addition, the Mother Baby Unit is supported 24 hours a day, seven days a week by anesthesia staff. This enables us not only to respond to unexpected emergencies, but also to provide you with effective and timely pain management should you and your provider decide that epidural pain management is right for you.
