Pregnancy is a unique time for future mothers and fathers, one that involves many important decisions. You should decide who you want to deliver your baby, where you want to deliver, and which pain relief methods you want to use during labor. It is best to learn all the available options, and to make these decisions before labor begins. Make sure you communicate your feelings about medications and invasive treatments to your partner and your doctor prior to labor and delivery.
