Nitrous oxide for pain management


HSHS St. Mary's Hospital Medical Center is the only hospital in Sheboygan and the Lakeshore to offer nitrous oxide.
Nitrous oxide is a method of pain relief and anxiety management for mom during childbirth. It is often used at the dentist and referred to as laughing gas. By inhaling the gas through a mask, nitrous oxide is a safe and proven method for anxiety and pain management during labor.
There are no side effects from nitrous oxide for baby, and the side effects for mom are minimal. It is a temporary method of relief because it is cleared from the body when mom stops inhaling the gas and removes the mask.

Nitrous oxide can be

  • used before having an epidural (and it is also safe to have an epidural later on).

  • an alternative option to pain medication if someone is leaning toward a more natural childbirth experience.

  • used before trying pain medication (Nubain).

  • stopped if mom decides she would like to switch to pain medication (Nubain).

Birthing Classes


Our goal is to provide expectant families in Northeast Wisconsin with the most up-to-date information about pregnancy, childbirth and newborn care.

  • Childbirth education and birthing classes help prepare families, reduce anxiety, empower mom to use her natural ability to give birth and promote optimal outcomes for both mom and baby.

  • Newborn care classes are available for the family to provide caregivers, grandparents and siblings customized information for their specific role.

In order to limit the spread of illness, childbirth classes are cancelled until further notice.
