How is labor treated?

The treatment a mother and baby receive during labor can vary widely depending on their health, the stage of pregnancy and the preferences of the mother and treating health professionals. Pain relief can be used to ease the pain and stress of labor. Some women may need to have their labor induced, or may not be able to deliver vaginally, requiring a caesarean section.
