Pain Control Options

A dedicated staff of certified nurse anesthetists is available around the clock to provide pain control options for your comfort.

Intrathecals/epidurals for pain control allow the mother to be more comfortable without complete loss of feeling during labor. Since it allows you to be more relaxed, it can make your baby’s passage through the birth canal faster and easier. And because intrathecals are not introduced through the mother’s bloodstream, it has a minimal, if any, effect on your baby.

We encourage you to discuss pain control methods with your physician during your prenatal visits. You may also consult with a CRNA by calling 794-5836. If a CRNA is not available, leave a message and a staff member will return your call as soon as possible.
