In brief: Many options

Lamaze classes with slow deep breathing, meditation, virtual reality , acupuncture will all help relieve pain during vaginal delivery.
If that does not work, continuous epidural or IV narcotics will help decrease or eliminate labor pain.

In brief: Accupuncture

Different cultures, especially eastern cultures, have utilized alternative, or natural pain relief methods for not only childbirth, but also surgical procedures.
These methods have included accupuncture and hypnosis, both of which have been adopted in some hospital settings in the United States.
