Your practitioner will monitor the growth and development of your baby throughout your pregnancy. Sometimes additional testing, such as non-stress, amniocentesis, ultrasonography or oxytocin challenge testing will be ordered. These tests may be performed in your practitioner’s office or at Milford Regional. Labor management during labor and delivery may include coping strategies, the use of pain medication and/or epidural anesthesia. Be sure to discuss these methods with your practitioner during your pre-natal visits. You’ll also learn more about labor management at your childbirth education classes.
