Abstract
This guide will give you information to help you choose what pain relief options are right for you as you get ready for the birth of your baby. Every delivery is different, and not all women will want or need all of the options we describe. If you have any questions, please talk with your primary health care provider. If you plan to deliver vaginally, it is important to think about your plans for pain relief in labour. Even if you plan to deliver using non-medicated pain relief options, it is a good idea to have a backup plan just in case. Topics include: relaxation and breathing techniques, nitrous oxide gas, narcotic analgesics, and epidurals (an FAQ section on epidurals is provided).
