Delivery Pain and Epidural Anesthesia
Birth pain is a versatile pain with its own characteristics. During birth, the severity, duration, spread and quality of pain changes according to the stages of birth.
Birth pain is one of the most severe pain that people can feel, but it is also the fastest forgotten. Pain is a biological sign that indicates that birth has begun. However, pain does not have to be accompanied by absolute birth. Pain at the beginning of labor is the pain that causes the uterus to contract and the cervix to relax. Therefore, pain in the first period at birth is generally felt in the waist, belly and bone structure. In the second stage of birth, stretching the bottom of the bone roof and pain caused by the vagina become more prominent.
Although birth pain is one of the strongest pain a woman can suffer for life, she is the sweetest and easiest to forget. .

At a certain stage of labor, a special needle is made by an experienced anesthetist to a space that is several times away from the spinal cord in the lumbar region, and a thin tube is inserted and left in this space. By giving painkillers from this tube at regular intervals, pain sensation is prevented during labor, during and after delivery. Thus, the pains that can strain the patience and resilience of expectant mothers and cause hesitation from normal birth are prevented and an opportunity for a quite comfortable birth is obtained.
