In this article Dr. Anderson explains how VR can help mothers to deliver child with less painkillers. Even if it is not a solution for everyone and it should be used with other methods, it permits decrease drugs needs.
He said that although he already helped more than forty mothers deliver their kids with VR, Martucci’s case was the most successful. She had the VR device on for the longest time, and she could go entirely drug-free. The obstetrician-gynecologist recounted that in another patient’s case, it was the mother’s third birth and while she needed an epidural and narcotics during the previous births, with VR, she only used the epidural, which was a significant achievement. “We didn’t have the home-run with no pain medicine whatsoever, but we came pretty close,” explained Anderson.
