Twilight Sleep, amnesiacs, and sodium pentathol were used up to about 1970 in most locations. Regional anesthesias became popular after that. Even acupuncture for c/secs.
Ever wonder why there was such a prevalent drug culture among the young people in the 1960s? They were all born high. This was the first generation born almost entirely in the hospital and their mothers were knocked out cold because that was "better".
I was born at home UC, premature, in 1954. People asked my parents if they were too poor to pay for the hospital, because that was the ONLY reason a woman would not go to the hospital in them days...
My own four were born at home, 1980-92...my contemporaries all had their babes by c/secs in the hospital.
