My midwife did a trick by keeping a hot towel near the vagina…it soothes a lot n helped shorten the labour…

Samantha Davis says:

I’m currently pregnant and I have a 4 year old. You really can have a painless or moderately painless labor. I personally never needed one with my son but got talked into getting one to help me ‘dilate faster’. EVERY WOMAN AND LABOR IS DIFFERENT. These tips will help for sure BUT how you care for yourself during pregnancy makes a difference as well. The more active you are the better (walks, yoga, light exercise). Maintaining stress is important (meditation or whatever calms you down). Eating healthy, nutritious foods. You also have to visualize the labor and delivery you want. Yes life happens, stressors will happen whether you’re pregnant or not, but dealing with them, maintaining a positive (calm in the storm) peace of mind, being active, etc helps TREMENDOUSLY.

I really hate it when people tell me natural birth is a bad idea. Get the tap. You'll change your mind. How about let me decide. Support me the best you can and we will see how i deal with it.

Heather Hamblin says:

I get really nervous because when I was in the hospital in labor with my son, everyone looked at me weird while coping by moanin & swaying…. ALSO, I couldn't focus on the paper work and they were getting upset with me because I had to stop to work through the contractions..

ALSO my other issue was, I felt forced to have to stay in bed… I NEVER feel like I have that choice to get out of the bed to walk, cope, or do whatever I need to to make it through..

I was stuck in bed the entire time with my son (2nd) & ended up getting the epidural 45 minutes before my baby came out…
My daughter, (1st) I got the epidural and my daughter was born 1 hr 30 mins later..

SO I know I can do it, I just never am treated like I HAVE THAT CHOICE… and I expect to be treat like a human having a natural birth. NOT like I'm stupid for moaning, swaying, as if I'm being "dramatic".

I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby. & I truly want to try for that natural birth, especially with everything going on with this Pandemic.. I'll be due Feb 2nd.. however I know I always have my babies a little early.

I'm just lost and don't know what to do! Everyone tells me I CAN'T do it & that I'm crazy… And my boyfriend isn't supportive during labor at all. He looks at me like "your having a baby, that's all you do.. no big deal"… he just watches the baby come out & that's it, no emotion, nothing.
He doesn't talk me through anything, he doesn't hold my hand, he doesn't tell me positive words, he doesn't rub my back.. He gets mad at me when I'm in pain & looks at me like a stupid..

I just don't know what to do.
He would have to be my only support person with the pandemic. & he would be really really abusive towards me if I asked him if someone else could be my support person instead (which I understand since he's the father and want a to see it).

Sorry for the long comment.
I would love ANY tips to get through the WORST OF THE WORST pain.. I can handle the first while, it those harder, longer, often contractions that occur I have a hard time coping through… like I said, I was stuck in bed with my other 2 (not by choice but felt they wouldn't let me get up) and I had no support/anyone to assist with rubbing, massaging, etc.

Coral Jeanne Smith says:

I am so proud to know you…you rock and I can't wait to see you again and talk birth!!

Tara Endicott says:

Wonderful ideas. I love the favorite or good smells. I'm gonna try it.

SunRise says:

So so so useful thanks a lot

Vanessa Hernandez says:

Wish I would have seen this before having my baby naturally by accident…I wanted to get an epidural but by the time I got the hospital it was to let to get one…I was not prepared at all but it was worth it…I just wish I would have known how to cope through the pain better

aurielMoon says:

What about drinking raspberry leaf tea during pregnancy? I heard that it makes labor easier. Is there any truth in that?

Kenisa P says:

Amazing video thankyou so much xx

Brandi Monty says:

My first birth was TRAUMATIC. I have an 32k platelet count and I’m overdue. Won’t be getting an epidural again. I hope these tips help me but labor pain has been worse than breaking my arm

Amaka Udeze says:

Thank you very much for lessons I really appreciate

Flower says:

Well, I just gave birth June 1st. I went in there thinking I could do it. Went 6 hours without the epidural. I regret it. The pain is extraordinary. I threw up. I was already dialated at 4am, but the doctor wasn’t going to arrive until 8am. Breathing, all of that, not of that worked. The epidural saved my life. I got to sleep, before it was time to push. Praise God for that thing. But if you’re able to tolerate the pain, good for you momma.

Nina Jewett says:

I don't want a epidural because I found out it can cause health problems in the future.

Lisa Bee says:

I give birth 2 weeks ago, (my first child) I watched all of these types of videos, nothing they suggested took away my pain! I repeat nothing, breathing techniques, remaining relaxed etc. I had a natural birth and got there in the end but I ended up getting an epidural because I couldn’t cope with the agony I was in, I laboured for nearly 24 hours and had quite a harrowing birth. On the other hand I have friends who’ve barely felt their labour pains and have had a natural birth, with little to no pain but haven’t practiced any of these techniques. Once my little boy arrived I forgot the pain but gosh kudos to anyone who can get through birth with no pain relief.

african kiki says:

I'm due june 24 and I'ma try music but idk if I want to do it natural this time I did it twice

the BAM fam says:

I hope I will be able to handle this

JLIN B says:

Since i have to wear a mask during labour can i place essential oils inside the mask? And breathing using a mask will be challenging any suggestions?
