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 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 during labour. Even if you plan to deliver without pain relief medications, it is a good idea to have a backup plan. Topics include: relaxation and breathing techniques, nitrous oxide gas, narcotic analgesics, and epidurals (an FAQ section on epidurals is provided). The importance of talking to your health care provider about your wishes before the birth is also listed.
