Welcome to the OAA

The Obstetric Anaesthetists' Association provides education and training for anaesthetists, midwives and other practitioners involved in caring for pregnant women in the UK and overseas. It produces free, evidence based information for the public about epidurals and other forms of labour pain relief and anaesthesia for caesarean section. A key objective is promoting safety in maternity care.
