Women who control pain meds in labor use less

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Women who administer their own epidurals during labor tend to use less medication than those who get a continuous infusion.

In fact, researchers found they used 30 percent less analgesia and had similar satisfaction rates when compared to women using traditional epidurals.

Moms who were able to control their pain medication had fewer forcep or vacuum-assisted deliveries.
