As anesthesiologists we understand that decisions about pain relief during labor are both important and personal. We are prepared to help you, but only if you and your obstetrician want us to. We are always available to assist you with pain relief for labor and delivery. An anesthesiologist will attend one of the birth classes to answer questions.
