It works!

Painless delivery is an ideal name. The exact statement should be labor analgesia.

In general, painless childbirth does not feel completely without any feeling, but can feel contractions, or mildly acceptable pain.

The most commonly used is spinal analgesia, which is epidural anesthesia. This can be said to be the most accurate method of analgesia in all methods of labor analgesia to date, and needs to be performed by an experienced anesthesiologist.

After the anesthesiologist successfully punctures the lumbar intervertebral space, a small amount of local anesthetic or opioid is injected into the subarachnoid space, and a thin catheter is placed. One end of the catheter is connected to the analgesic pump, and one end is in the hands of the mother.

After the anesthesiologist sets the drug limit, the mother can self-administer the drug according to the degree of pain, and the analgesic effect can continue until the end of delivery.

When I was a son, I thought I could rely on my obstetric knowledge and Ramez's breathing method to defeat the pain caused by contractions, but just when I broke my husband's belt, the palace mouth only opened three. After a centimeter, I decided to put on anesthesia. When the medicine flowed into my spinal canal, the pain that suddenly eased made me feel like I was flying from heaven to heaven.

Here are some common misconceptions about painlessness:

Does painlessness affect your baby's health?

Once, I introduced a painless childbirth to an eligible mother. After fully telling me, the first problem for the mother is "I see online, it is true that playing painless will affect the baby's intelligence."

Although I told her not to, she and her family were obviously not convinced that her mother even sneaked aside. "Your doctors only said good." Finally they refused painless childbirth and suffered a full 12 hours of pain. Only finally gave birth to a baby.

Labor analgesia anesthesia is strictly given analgesic drugs without affecting the labor and fetal safety. Studies have shown that analgesia in the spinal canal is safe for the mother and the fetus.

The dose of the drug used in painless delivery is very small, only 1/5 to 1/10 of the cesarean section, the chance of entering the mother's blood and passing through the placenta is negligible, and it will have little effect on the fetus.

Conversely, when the body feels severe pain, it releases a substance called catecholamine, which has an adverse effect on both the mother and the fetus and may cause fetal hypoxia. Therefore, painless delivery can also reduce the risk of fetal hypoxia.

In the event of an accident requiring urgent surgery, a woman who has received labor analgesia does not need to be anesthetized again, so she can gain more time to deal with emergencies.

Does painlessness hurt the mother's body?

Painless delivery does not cause low back pain, but there is also a risk of postoperative complications. The most common is low blood pressure and headache. The headache is self-limiting and can be recovered after a few days of rest. Other less common complications include nerve damage and dizziness, urine retention, nausea and vomiting.

But overall, as long as it is operated by an experienced anesthesiologist in strict accordance with the norms, the probability of serious complications is still relatively low, so labor pain is still a safer operation.

Who is not suitable for painless childbirth?

Of course, not everyone can meet the conditions for painless delivery. In addition to the hospital you are providing, you need the patient's body to be able to withstand anesthesia. There are no contraindications to anesthesia, such as intraspinal tumors. Abnormal coagulation function, pelvic deformation can not be vaginal delivery and other abnormal conditions.

Why is it so difficult to promote painless delivery in China?

In countless film and television works, the scenes of childbirth are not the result of maternal hair, sweating and screaming. The kind of hysterical pain comes from wave after wave of contractions.

How painful is the contraction? Every woman who has experienced has a description of her own: "The ribs are broken and people are smashed with a hammer." "The fire is as painful as it wants to explode" or even "painful death."

As a degree of pain, it is only ranked in the pain of extensive burns and the level 10 pain behind the liver and kidney stone cramps. For thousands of years, Chinese women have been so hard with their mothers that they are fighting against it.

In 1853, when Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom gave birth to her eighth child, she inhaled chloroform to alleviate the pain of production.

In China, a 2004 report mentioned that as a big country with an average of 20 million women, the proportion of women who enjoy painless delivery is less than 1%. In the United States at the time, the official number of labor analgesic use had reached 61%.

The popularity of painless childbirth in China is partly due to the huge shortage of doctors and anesthesiologists. Many hospitals do not have enough staff to promote painless delivery.

There is also a part of the maternal and family members who believe that "the birth of a child should be painful" stereotypes, as well as the false panic caused by the lack of understanding of painless childbirth.

Once, a maternal woman asked for a painless childbirth. We told our family members, but the mother-in-law’s mother-in-law said that she did not agree. The reason is that anesthesia is not good for adults and children, and it is not painful for children, and it is not called for children without pain. It is.

And her husband has been in a hesitant state of swinging around. As a result, the maternal husband was immediately signed, and after receiving the painless mood, the mood was relaxed, and the cervix was opened smoothly, and the baby was easily born.

I want to give birth painlessly. What should I do?

To receive a painless delivery, you need to go to the hospital to find out, because not all hospitals are available. However, the good news is that more and more hospitals are working hard, and painless delivery has gradually become popular in the top three hospitals.

If you are lucky and the hospital you are planning to give birth happens to be painless, then it is best to consult clearly. If you can make an appointment in advance, you can consider making an appointment after 38 weeks.

Because anesthesiologists are often in short supply, making an appointment in advance allows your anesthesiologist to have enough time to serve you.

Of course, in addition to these, if you can control your weight, balance your nutrition, exercise moderately, and do a good job on time, you may have a higher probability of successfully getting a baby.

With the development of society and the advancement of medicine, "humanization" has been increasingly mentioned in various fields. Labor analgesia is a great invention for all women suffering from labor pain.

It has made more and more people realize that the pain of having a child does not represent the mother's great medal, and should not be the criterion for evaluating whether a mother is enough to love her child and is "not brave enough".

Many women's panic about childbirth comes from pain, and the promotion of labor analgesic measures also represents a kind of care and respect for women in medicine and society.
