Abstract
This pamphlet 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 everyone will want or need the types of pain relief listed. If you have questions, talk with your doctor. If you plan to deliver vaginally, it is important to think about your plans for pain relief during labour. Even if you plan to deliver without pain relief medications, it is good to have a backup plan. Topics include: relaxation and breathing methods, nitrous oxide gas, opioid analgesics, and epidurals (an FAQ section on epidurals is provided). The importance of talking to your doctor about your wishes before the birth is also listed.
