Water immersion and epidural analgesia are the most preferred pain relief methods during the labor process. Adverse effects related to these methods, impact on the labor, and perception of pain is well studied in the literature. We aimed to investigate the cord level of Copeptin, Total serum oxidant (TOS), antioxidant (TAS), interleukin (IL) -1, IL-6, and oxytocin after the labor with water immersion, epidural analgesia, and vaginal birth without pain relief.
