Antenatal Class: Pain Relief

Pain relief and nutrient in motherhood. Well, I should not write about the later because I believed it is pretty much the same as what you already know as healthy diet. Be it in pregnancy, confinement or nope, we still need to have a balance meal plan that consist of carb, protein, vitamins and etc.

What attracts me more during the 4th session of antenatal class is topic on pain relief during labor. At least it gives me a slight idea of options on pain relief in labour. And it's good that the anaesthesia showed us the 'on scene pictures' of women taking each pain relief mentioned. Now I know how does the inhaler of laughing gas looks like, or how does the epidural process is done or what is walking epidural and etc.

The anaesthesia said that epidural do wonders to mommy during the delivery process. With epidural on, you don't feel the pain and you can still move your body, walk and relax until cervix is fully dilated. But as to Pantai's policy, they don't allow mommy to have walking epidural because once the epidural is on, they will attached you to the CTG machine to monitor both mommy and baby. Shishh, there goes my plan to tahan-beranak-sambil-bersenang- lenang-di-Starbaks. Ooppssiee. Starbaks telah di ban. Fine lah then.

And one good thing of having epidural is, it can also be used during c-section, just by increasing the concentration of the epidural. Meaning to say, anaesthesia doesn't have to turn off the epidural and they will just add another extra doses to increase the concentration. The level of concentration is 1:10, normal to c-sect.

And she told us that c-sect mommy with epidural can actually sit, walk and bf baby on the very next day. Is that truee?? Sehebat itukan epidural?

My husband?

Now he's getting more worried than before. Yeahh, thanks to all the pictures on the slideshow. At least he knows what it takes for mommy to go through the whole labor pain. Siyes, muka2 kat slides tu berkerut, menjerit, segala bagai ada. And he keeps asking me, "Boleh ka neh? Sat gi Abang yang pengsan tang tu.." My answer will always be simple, "Kalau yang ni tak lepas, macam mana nak yang dua sampai enam tu?" =P

Yet, I still don't have a definite or written birth plan but I'm looking forward to have a relax and silent delivery process. Hopefully I can remain calm and welcome the pain as I know that everything is just part of getting the baby out. But again, you can always plan for thing but the outcome is just so uncertain as you may never know how hard the baby gonna push his head and body down before crowning.

Info: According to the studies done, labor pain is the 3rd most painful pain in the world. Tho the length can be short, but the level of pain can sometimes be so unbearable. Uhhh, saspen pulak saya...
