Educational Video After Cesarean Delivery
“Educational Video on Pain Management and Subsequent Opioid Use After Cesarean Delivery”
This is a randomized controlled trial assessing the utility of an educational video on pain management after a cesarean section to reduce opioid use. The educational video will be shown during the patient's postpartum stay and the amount of opioid and adjunct medications will be assessed in those who watched the video compared to those who received the standard of care discharge instructions without the video. Participants will be contacted 7 and 14 days after cesarean birth (post operative day number 7 and number 14) to complete a telephone survey on their overall pain management and to determine how many opioid tablets have been used.
