Best Life: Opioid free c-section, doctors looking to cut back on drug used for new moms


CLEVELAND, Ohio (Ivanhoe Newswire) - This year, one in three women will give birth by c-section. Most of these new moms will be sent home with opioids to help control the pain.

Now doctors are working to cut back on the need for those highly addictive drugs, replacing them with something just as powerful but not habit-forming.

Reighn Maris Williams was c-section number four for mom, Ada Williams.

“They were very painful,” Ada shared.
