Debunking the Myths about Painless Delivery


Using a type of regional anaesthesia that offers pain relief during normal labour, painless delivery can be achieved. Epidural anaesthesia is given to the mother’s lower back by an injection. It takes about 10-15 minutes for the medication to take effect. For women with a lower pain bearing capability, who would typically opt for a C-section, this is the right choice. 

Many doctors have expertise in normal delivery in Hyderabad, but if you feel that you can’t tolerate the pain, you can always opt for painless delivery. But many women have a lot of second thoughts about painless delivery. So, here are a few myths and facts about painless delivery. 

The odds of ending up having the C-section are higher when I select painless delivery.

Painless delivery can increase the risk of needing instrumentation to pull the baby out, such as forceps and vacuum. The assertion that it improves c-section chances, however, is entirely false.


The epidurals used in painless childbirth may cause the mother to experience permanent back damage or paralysis.

Back pain is only common in women after childbirth if they do not exercise and do not take sufficient calcium supplements during and after pregnancy. But there is no proof or empirical relevance to the belief that painless delivery will lead to paralysis. Cases of paralysis during child delivery are also very rare.
