Our gynaecologists spend enough time to prepare her about the labour and delivery.

Medical Miracle

Epidural anaesthesia is a boon for pregnant women, which is an advancement in pain management during labor, that ensures a comfortable labor. It is a regional anaesthesia in which an anaesthetic drug is injected near the spinal cord in the spinal canal. It numbs the body below the waist, but the movements are not impaired.

It is administered when the patient is in active labor. It can be given as a single injection or in multiple doses through a special epidural catheter by a skilled anaesthetist.


  • Almost complete relief from pain with the patient being mobile
  • No postpartum headache as in spinal anaesthesia
  • Mother is conscious and alert throughout the labor
  • An instrumental delivery can be performed under the same anaesthesia, if need arises
  • If the patient has to be taken for caesarean section, the effect can be topped up through the epidural catheter.
