Memorial Hermann's pilot program re-introduces the perks of laughing gas to expecting mothers

THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (December03, 2017)

 First-time expectant mother Lauren Lococo came to Memorial Hermann's hospital in The Woodlands open to any procedure that would ensure a healthy baby and pleasant birthing experience but hoping she wouldn't need an epidural. Lococo, who delivered a healthy 7-pound boy that June day, became Memorial Herman's first patient to get the gas as part of a pilot program now being offered at The Woodlands hospital. "This won't replace existing methods of pain relief, but it's good to be able to offer another choice," said Dr. Gregory Eads, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands. "For patients who want to be in control and make their own decisions, nitrous oxide has its advantages."
