Bring Your Baby into the World Safely
Your individual plan of care could take advantage of various pain control methods we utilize, such as epidurals, nitrous oxide, and intravenous medications. CCM Health also now offers sterile water injections as a pain management option for birthing. Sterile water injections involve the injection of a small amount of sterile water beneath the skin, which can help alleviate back pain during labor, providing mothers with a natural and non-pharmacological approach to pain relief during childbirth.
For more natural pain relief and delivery, we can supply you with a whirlpool tub, a birthing ball, and a birthing stool. Aroma therapy is also available at CCM Health, offering the soothing benefits of essential oils to enhance relaxation and reduce stress for our patients, creating a more comfortable and calming environment.
At CCM Health, our dedicated staff also undergo training in guiding movement during labor to support both mothers and babies. This expertise helps enhance the birthing experience by promoting good positioning and comfort, this helps with a smoother and more positive journey into parenthood. We welcome and encourage you to invite your support people into the birthing room to help you through your labor and delivery.
