Bringing a little one into this world and going through labor is unique to every woman. There are many safe options for managing labor pain. While some women prefer breathing and relaxation techniques throughout labor, others may choose to combine these methods with pain medications or an epidural.
In partnership with your obstetrician and obstetric care team, PAA is dedicated to managing your labor and delivery pain with a primary focus on the safety of both mother and baby. Our involvement begins with a thorough pre-anesthetic assessment of each expectant mother. We encourage patients with more complex medical issues to have an evaluation through our pre-anesthesia clinic in order to discuss options.
In the hospital, a dedicated anesthesiologist will be involved with your care for the duration of labor and delivery. Should the need arise, or if planned in advance, we also provide anesthesia for surgical delivery by C-section.
No matter the journey you take bringing life into this world, rest assured that you have a PAA anesthesiologist who is dedicated to providing the highest levels of safety and comfort every step of the way.
