Best Pain Management for Labor is a Complex Question

The answer is personal and different for every woman.

These are some we have heard in support of using less medication with birth:

Determination, Doula & Doctor

Our triple D winning recipe for a natural birth.

Our patients tell us natural birth, or unmedicated vaginal childbirth, can be a huge personal achievement. Like many difficult feats, it isn’t easy and sometimes not possible on the first try. If you want it, give yourself time, and we promise you can do it (baring an unexpected complication with the baby or placenta- that’s the luck factor). If you don’t get there for your first delivery then, you still can for your second.

Birth Focus


The national medical consensus is that
a natural birth is better for mom and baby.

However, if cesarean is needed we are experts at fast and safe surgery.

“Women having their first births are up to 10 times more likely to have a cesarean than women having their second or subsequent child. With current U.S. Obstetric practices, if the first birth results in a cesarean delivery, then over 90 percent of all subsequent births will be cesarean. The opposite holds true:  if the first birth is vaginal, more than 90% of all subsequent births will be vaginal.”
