Nitrous Oxide for Labour Pain
It’s so important to know all your options for pain control before you go into labour. That way, you can confidently make decisions in the moment that will work for you.. without trying to process and learn about all your options while you are uncomfortable.
Today we are talking about laughing gas! As a labour and delivery nurse, I have seen so many mamas labour beautifully using it.
It takes the edge off and can be the perfect tool to make it past that transition period (7-10 cm) where the pressure women feel can be intense! I’d love to know! Who’s tried it? Who loved it? What are your stories about your experience with nitrous oxide?

Wondering About Epidurals?
There is a lot of information out there on epidurals.. it can be overwhelming and some of it isn’t true. Pain is subjective and you are in charge of how you want to manage it.

You are the captain of the ship- not your partner and you shouldn’t feel pressure from anyone to do birth a certain way. Watch this if you are wondering:
👉When is the right time to get an epidural
