Patient Education

The goals of the site are to:

  • Provide you with descriptions of techniques available for pain relief during childbirth,
  • Discuss the benefits & risks of modern pain relief techniques for childbirth,
  • List electronic links to other informational websites, and
  • Electronically publish educational materials, including handouts, pamphlet templates, and slide presentations, for use by community anesthesiologists, childbirth educators, and non-anesthesiologist health care providers to help educate their patients about labor pain relief and anesthesia for obstetric surgery.
