Anesthesia is on the second floor by the WICU in the Ambulatory Surgical Center. You can walk in from 1300-1430 to meet with the anesthesia provider. You will learn about the options for pain control in labor and be able to ask questions about the risk and benefits. Meeting with anesthesia ahead of time will decrease your wait time when you are in labor. They are usualy called once you hit 4-6 centameters when you ask for pain meds. After 6 centameters you can ask for them up till 8 centameters. While in the office you will sign and date a paper stating that you talked to the doctor and that the doctor has all the information needed for your care. She will ask the basic questions you are usually asked when going to an OB appointment such as, Are you alergic to anything? If so, what usually happens when you intake what you are allergic to? basic stuff like that.
Since I am not planning on using any type of pain killers or medicine do I still need to talk to the appointment maybe just in case??

Yes you still need to go in there and register with them. They need the information so just incase soemthing should happen they will know what they can and can not give you and do their job without having to go through the whole paper process.
