The good news of pregnancy makes countless small families immersed in joy and expectation. However, as the due date is approaching, expectant mothers are more and more entangled while excited. "I heard that it is painful to have a baby, so let's go straight to it"; "I have a good life, my mother recovers faster, and my baby is smarter" ... Since 2002, the Quanzhou Maternal and Child Health Hospital has routinely carried out painless labor, so that expectant mothers can Welcome the new life more comfortably. But do you really know about painless delivery? Listen to what the anesthesiologist says.
Why you need "painless delivery"
How painful is it to give birth naturally? A set of pain indexes in the United States divide the pain into 1-10 grades according to the degree. The pain index with a utility knife that cuts the middle finger from the middle is 9.2, while the index of natural delivery is 9.7-9.8, which means that it is better than a knife. It hurts. The degree of pain is probably the most painful in a lifetime for most women, and it also has some adverse effects on the mother.
The severe pain of natural delivery may cause maternal hyperventilation, or contraction fatigue, cause prolonged labor and affect the placental blood supply. Painless childbirth can make mothers no longer experience painful torture, reduce childbirth complications and fear of childbirth,
Understanding Painless Labor
In 1995, the World Health Organization put forward the slogan of “Everyone enjoys reproductive health” and “Everyone has the right to enjoy childbirth and analgesia” by 2015. "Painless delivery" is one of the best gospels given to women in the history of medicine. At present, the painless delivery rate in Europe and the United States is as high as 80%. But in China, the overall proportion is still less than 10%.
Our "painlessness" here refers to the combination of spinal and epidural analgesia. Analgesia is performed through epidural puncture, subarachnoid administration, and continuous epidural catheterization. The analgesic time can cover the entire process of delivery.
Painless childbirth requires a joint assessment by the obstetrician and anesthesiologist. If painless labor is available, you must sign an informed consent for childbirth analgesia (notifying the risk of anesthesia) before anesthesia. The following are the most painless childbirth procedures for expectant mothers:
Painless delivery process
Maternal analgesia requirements → Evaluation of obstetricians and midwives → Evaluation of anesthesiologists → Draw up analgesic methods and inform related matters and risks → Sign informed consent for childbirth analgesia and related medical documents → Prepare related items, drugs, medical equipment → Midwives are open Intravenous equipment → Standard implementation of spinal canal operation under sterile room monitoring → Analgesia management during delivery (observing vital signs, VAS, bromange scores) → Return to the ward after observing the abnormal situation for two hours after delivery
Painless ≠ completely painless
Pain is an individual's subjective feeling, which varies from person to person. After the medicine takes effect, the contraction pain will be reduced accordingly. Therefore, some people feel completely relaxed, and some people still faint.
Solve the "painless" misunderstanding.
1. Will narcotics affect my baby?
NO! The dose of anesthetic required for painless delivery is extremely low. After its dose is absorbed into the maternal circulation, the drug absorbed through the placenta is minimal, and it has no adverse effects on the fetus and subsequent growth and development.
2. Painless delivery can cause postpartum low back pain?
NO! The incidence of low-level postpartum low back pain is about 40%, which is caused by the factors of childbirth itself. Painless childbirth is not the culprit of postpartum low back pain. Symptomatic treatment and rest can be relieved.
3. Will painless delivery result in delivery weakness?
NO! Painless childbirth does not affect maternal movement while controlling pain, and it has little effect on uterine contraction. On the contrary, it is painless and maintains physical strength, giving the mother more strength to complete the delivery.
