Dr. Duncan Burkholder Discusses Pain Control during Child Birth


When it comes to the pain of labor we only have three options. Option 1:
Breathe through it. There are many women who can do that and it’s really not just because
of how tough they are, it’s because of those other things that have to do with
weather the labor is difficult or not. Second option for control of pain are
narcotics; Narcotics are safe or we wouldn’t offer them, you know we always laugh about
people saying you know “we might hurt the baby in some way”, I mean obviously
doctors and nurses are never going to do that. Of course the third option for pain
control is epidural. It is pretty much a consensus that there’s no point for
women to hurt in this day and time and epidural stops all the pain. So, I
personally am pretty pro epidural just because I don’t think women should hurt, but it’s her call.
