Brief description of study

Patients presenting for normal spontaneous vaginal delivery who have a neuraxial anesthestic will be randomized to receive preservative free morphine or saline placebo after delivery.

After obtaining consent, women presenting to the labor floor at Mount Sinai Hospital will be randomized into two groups, intervention and placebo. Baseline demographic data and surveys in regards to postpartum depression, anxiety, breastfeed willingness and pain scores will be obtained.
