Some people say labour and birth is the worst pain ever (“oh don’t worry, I can survive this – I survived childbirth!!’….) whilst some say it's manageable. Some people even describe their birth as being pain free. But how can they all be describing the same process? I’m going to set out some of the things that impact how painful or comfortable giving birth will be.
Entenox (or gas & air) is a really popular form of pain relief. What do you need to know about it when considering your options for pain relief in labour?
