The study aims to detect the most effective route of analgesia during labor, and to evaluate maternal satisfaction and the effect of analgesia in the mode of delivery. A retrospective observational design was used on data from Department of gynecology and obstetrics at Maternity and Children hospital in Makkah, from January 2019 to March 2019. The study interviewed obstetricians and focused the dissection on three questions (the most effective type of analgesia, maternal satisfaction, and dose analgesia effect on the delivery mode). The data was derived from the patient notes for three months in a total of 392 cases. Analysis of the notes and observation showed that the most effective method is epidural analgesia. While several pharmacological and non-pharmacological options exist for labor pain, epidural anesthesia remains the gold standard for severe pain. It substantially affects maternal satisfaction during one of the most painful periods of a womanís life.
