– A first-time mother-to-be gets a lot of advice from well-meaning friends and family members about everything from breastfeeding to which kind of diapers to buy. But when it comes to anesthesia, the nation’s 50,000 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) want all new moms to know their anesthesia options for labor and delivery.

The overall safety of the expectant mom and her baby are a CRNA’s top priority. CRNAs are anesthesia experts and patient safety advocates who provide high quality anesthesia services combined with a personal concern for the health and welfare of the mother and baby.

To learn more about the anesthesia options for labor and delivery, visit the AANA website. The information is available in both English and Spanish.

About the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists Founded in 1931 and located in Park Ridge, Ill., and Washington, D.C., the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) is the professional organization representing more than 50,000 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and student registered nurse anesthetists across the United States. As advanced practice registered nurses and anesthesia specialists, CRNAs administer approximately 43 million anesthetics to patients in the United States each year and are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural America. In some states, CRNAs are the sole anesthesia professionals in nearly 100 percent of rural hospitals. For more information, visit www.aana.com and www.future-of-anesthesia-care-today.com/ and follow @aanawebupdates on Twitter.
