Tips for Comfort During Labor

Learn techniques for finding comfort throughout the labor process, such as using:

Cesarean Section

If a healthy delivery requires a cesarean section (C-section) procedure, find comfort in knowing your baby will be delivered with the expertise of your maternal care team, in addition to a top-quality Avera surgical team.

Even if C-section isn’t your first choice for delivering your baby, you’ll still experience a satisfying birth process. The result is the same as labor – the delivery of a healthy baby and a safe, healthy mom.
