The University of Chicago Medicine - The Family Birth Center

Epidural Labor Pain Relief

Our obstetric anesthesiology specialists aim to put you at ease if you choose or need epidural pain relief.

At the Family Birth Center, having an epidural block does not mean you lose part of your childbirth experience. With your feedback, our team of specialists can adjust your dosing to ensure that you have adequate pain relief while trying to minimize loss of sensation.
