Hydrotherapy

 

All Labor & Delivery Rooms include a Hydrotherapy tub for mothers-to-be (who meet safety guidelines) as a pain relief alternative to epidural treatment. Immersion in warm water can promote relaxation and decrease pain in the early stages of labor. The water provides a soothing stimulation of nerves in the skin, promoting increased blood flow and reducing pain causing signals. Hydrotherapy can also increase uttering blood flow, decrease maternal blood pressure and shorten labor.

Nitrous Oxide Pain Management

 

We additionally o¬ffer a nitrous oxide pain management program as an alternative to an epidural and IV pain medications. Expectant mothers like using Nitronox because it does not require IV access and is self-administered, empowering them to safely and effectively help manage the discomfort of labor and post-birth procedures while remaining alert and conscious. Plus, it can be quickly eliminated from the body so it does not affect the baby’s central nervous system or breathing and has not been shown to alter or slow the labor process.
