labour and delivery

Dr. Shweta Wazir  chooses to offer Labour and birthing options at The Cloudnine Hoepital,sector 47, Gurgaon. She is also has admission and operating rights at other Hospitals like  Fortis, Artemis  and all major hospitals and nursing homes  in Gurgaon.
It is important to recognise the signs of labour. When you are experiencing regular contractions, coming every 10 minutes or you have ruptured your membranes (‘waters’) you should ring eiher  Dr Shweta or the Cloudnine Hospital on 0124-4467100   and they will advise you what to do.
When you present in labour, Dr Shweta  will assess you initially and then at regular intervals during the labour until the baby is born. When Dr Shweta is not there the medical officer on duty supervising your care with her will pass on any concerns. Together with  Dr Shweta  you will make all the major decisions regarding your obstetric care.
The nurses are given clear instructions on when to call Dr Shweta Wazir. This will ensure that Dr Shweta has time to attend your birth. On the very  rare occasion, She may miss a birth. This often means that the labour and birth has progressed quickly and efficiently.

Pain Relief in labour

The pain experienced through childbirth varies between women and so  does the desire or requirement for pain relief.

PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT:

  • Some women find the breathing and relaxation techniques taught in antenatal classes are all they require.
  • Hypnobirthing has also been shown to reduce the need for pharmacological pain relief.

SENSORY STIMULATION:

  • Sensory stimulation, e.g. massage

OPIOIDS

  • Pethidine and Morphine are usually given as injections into the muscle.
  • Fentanyl and alfentanil are shorter acting and are often given through a patient controlled analgesia pump (PCA).
  • Opioids are often more effective in early labour where they have a sedative effect. They work less well in later stages of labour at which time they may also be associated with breathing difficulties in the baby.

NITROUS

  • Nitrous has been shown to be effective in 50% of women in early labour
  • Can be used as an adjuvant with other local anaesthetic for forceps delivery, perineal repair and manual removal of placenta

PERINEAL INFILTRATION

  • Interrupts pain transmissions from the nerves to the outer parts of the vagina
  • Useful for the repair of perineal tears sustained during birth

EPIDURAL ANAESTHETIC

  • One of the most effective methods of pain relief for labour and birth
  • Analgesia titrated as required and topped up for operative birth, such as, caesarean, forceps of vacuum assisted birth
  • Adequate sensory analgesia with minimal motor blockade is the goal, to allow a sense of pressure, without pain, with each contraction
