Pain Relief

If you wish to have pain medication during delivery, anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) are available 24 hours a day to provide relief. Your nurse and anesthesia provider will take the time to answer your questions and address your concerns, to ensure that you understand your options and are comfortable with your decisions. We offer a variety of pain control options, including IV pain medication and epidural anesthesia and encourage you to discuss these options with your doctor or midwife prior to delivery.
