HELLO and welcome~~~congrats on yr pregnancy~~~
pain relief options:
1) Epidural - pain relief 100% (at least a thousand +/- thereabouts i think)
2) Laughing gas - partial pain relief only - side effects = black out (a few hundred?)
3) Injection on thigh - partial pain relief only (a few hundred also i would think)
that time i kept asking the nurses how much is the Epi jab and they also took so long and did not reply me at all.......
but i dont know how to prevent tear and stitches......
i watched before an online video (ang moh one) the mummy gave birth on all fours and followed the midwife's instructions on when to push when to stop....and she gave birth without a tear.
but i think its not possible locally to deliver on all fours....not sure if anyone did that. Perhaps home birth option???
