Abstract

Several analgesic options are available for patients during labor. Selection of the appropriate technique must be individualized. Education and preparation begins during prenatal care. If medications are to be used, the risks and benefits to the mother and infant must be considered. Continued patient-doctor communication throughout labor is essential. Patient preferences, tempered by sound medical judgment, should guide the selection of the optimal modality for pain control during labor.
