Who We Are
LabourPains.com is the public information website of the Obstetric Anaesthetists' Association (OAA), a UK Registered Charity. We are a multidisciplinary team of professional; anaesthetists, obstetricians and midwives and of course mothers.
We produce free, authoritative and unbiased information for the public about epidurals and other forms of labour pain relief and anaesthesia for caesarean section. All information is available online and replaces the original printed versions. We also produce foreign language translations of most of our material – in up to 40 languages at present.
The OAA as a professional body also provides education and training for anaesthetists, midwives and other practitioners who care for pregnant women in the UK and overseas. We do this through our regular national and international meetings, online learning material and through our professional journal. To learn more about these various educational activities, please visit our professionals’ website.
