Pain medication

You can never predict the course of your delivery which makes it an exciting yet sometimes scary event. It is unpredictable how your body will react to contractions and labour. To maintain in control of your delivery it is important to be aware of the options available to lighten your pain.

Bath and shower
TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Neuro Stimulation)
Sterile water injections
Acupressure point massage

It is important to be aware of the fact that any form of medicinal painkillers, with the exception of entonox, will mean we have to transfer you to the gynaecologist.  The gynaecologist will first have to determine whether your as well as your baby’s condition is severe enough for the need of painmedication. This diagnose will be based on a half hour monitoring of your baby’s heart.
