Twilight sleep

Twilight sleep is an amnesic condition characterized by insensibility to pain without loss of consciousness, induced by an injections of morphine and scopolamine, especially to relieve the pain of childbirth. Also known as a "zombie state." The use of this method fell out of favor because the relief of pain was often inadequate and there was a significant risk of asphyxia for the baby.
