1. Labor pain is fundamentally different than any other pain. It doesn’t signal a problem, it’s not constant (you get breaks), and it produces a desired result (your baby in your arms instead of in your uterus) and then it’s DONE.
2. In fact, when you embrace the pain as a productive and intelligent helper, suddenly the word “pain” doesn’t quite fit anymore. Maybe we can call the contractions “sensations”?
3. For most women, home is their safe place where they lack inhibition and most easily access a state of relaxed peace. The familiar environment allows us to move around, retreat to our “cave” (often the bedroom) and do other comfort-seeking activity that then takes the edge off the intensity of the sensations. The environment itself impacts your experience of pain due to the limits/freedoms it affords you.
4. There are a million ways besides drugs to help you get through unpleasant/intense/painful experiences. If you think epidural is the only option, you need to expand your thinking.
Today you can access Labor Pain Remedy – a HOLISTIC plan for pain management in non-hospital births.
YOU CAN DO THIS. I promise.
