Objective: To explore the application effect of painless delivery technology in clinical obstetrics. Methods: Clinical data of 900 women who gave birth were collected and randomly divided into groups A and B, each comprising 450 cases. Group A served as the control group, while Group B acted as the observation group. Group A underwent natural delivery, whereas Group B received combined spinal-epidural anesthesia for painless delivery. The effects of these two delivery techniques were comprehensively evaluated based on maternal pain level, postpartum recovery, postpartum lactation, and other relevant indicators. Results: In Group B, there were more individuals with pain levels of 0 and 1 compared to Group A, and significantly fewer individuals with pain levels of 2 and 3 than in Group A (P < 0.05). This suggests that the pain level in Group B was significantly superior to that in Group A. Additionally, postpartum recovery indicators among mothers in Group A were significantly higher than those in Group B (P < 0.05). Furthermore, the time for the onset of colostrum mobilization and adequate breast milk production was significantly longer in Group A compared to Group B (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Combined spinal-epidural anesthesia with ropivacaine + sufentanil demonstrates a positive application effect in painless delivery.
