"In the throes of you will give birth to their children," — said it was
It would seem that there is no pain — no problem. However, doctors claim that pain is necessary: that it forces a woman to complete the process of birth, that is, to strive for their end — the birth of the baby. No pain, no desire to work. And after childbirth — it is work.
On the other hand, the pain threshold at all different.
The natural anesthesia
It is believed that psychologically ready for childbirth woman, who is able to breathe properly, is well aware of all the stages of a generic process, which owns a focus on results and can do without pain.
Here is the opinion of assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology number 2 of the Moscow Medical Academy.
"For a woman getting ready to become a mother, it is very important psychoprophylactic training. This refers to the detailed explanation of the peculiarities of the pregnant childbirth complications that can occur in the first or second period, the characteristics of labor management physician. In this case, a woman having the information, with less fear of going to the generic activities and childbirth.
In addition, it is extremely important in the psycho-prophylactic preparation is to explain the methods and techniques for women to self-elimination of pain, self-help techniques currently in labor, facilitate the process of delivery. Self-massage of the lumbosacral spine, pelvis, legs, ability to relax, to breathe during labor — all greatly eases the pain. In women who have undergone training or psychoprophylactic laboring together with a psychologist, increases the pain threshold, they are less afraid of the pain. Births to torment them, and the path to finding happiness. Women come to the hospital did not suffer, and give birth to a healthy baby loved. "
Artificial (medication) anesthesia
The main component of pain medication are narcotic analgesics. If used, it is important to take into account two fundamental points.
- This can be assigned only if the woman has already entered a birth: was the latent phase of the first period and the cervix is opened at least
3-4In this case, see the anesthesia does not slow down labor, but rather facilitate the process.
- If before the expected time of birth is less than two hours, opioids are contraindicated. Otherwise, the baby will be born in a state of depression drug, that is, he will have a breathing problem (narcotic analgesics inhibit breathing reflex, and the first breath will be very difficult to do).
Excessive use of these analgesic drugs should not even because, according to the Swedish medical research, those adolescents whose mothers during childbirth received morphine preparations, five times the risk of addiction. In the nervous system of the child is "remembering" actions narcotic analgesic. And then one day, it is worth it to try — set a fast and highly addictive.
Now for labor analgesia is increasingly used epidural anesthesia, including women with complicated pregnancy and in women who are not psychologically well adjusted to give birth. This anesthesia is applied shortly before the birth of the child when the latent phase of the first stage of labor was over and use narcotic analgesics undesirable.
The method as follows:
Disadvantages of the method:
- in most cases an epidural slows or reduces labor, ie labor with anesthesia automatically converted into labor with the rodostimulyatsiey;
- causes headaches and pain in the back, who are pursuing a woman for quite a long time.
However, there are situations where no epidural anesthesia is necessary. For example, when labor begins when the cervix is not ready, or the so-called rigid neck in the first stage of labor (such poorly to the opening of the cervix, it spasm). In these cases, an epidural is "
Childbirth — powerful experience that with the right approach can be a positive memory of a woman's life. Among those sensations that are destined to experience during childbirth, the pain should not be the dominant one. Among its possible presence should not be taken as a necessary test, but as a good guide. After all, the feeling of pain tells the woman that you need to help your body to perform hard work.
