Your Options for Pain Relief in Childbirth
By Ann M. Showan, MD
and Myrstad Kanter Media
Many women are confused about their options for pain management during childbirth. This entertaining new video is an effective and engaging way to provide the information women need to make informed decisions about obstetric analgesia and anesthesia. It covers the roles of the various physicians and nurses in the delivery room and the pros and cons of the different types of pain relief, including anesthesia for cesarean sections.
The film's information is intercut with images of parenting and childbirth from classic movie comedies and cartoons. This light approach makes it suitable for women and their families in a variety of settings, including childbirth education classes, patient education libraries, clinic and office waiting rooms, even their own homes.
