View Full Version : What are some movies I can watch to show me ways to cope with the pain
I want a birth that is as natural as possible but just wondering what I can watch to get some tips on best coping with the pain..MAssage techniques, positions etc.
I dont know about movies, but I found that deep breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth really helped me. Also the bath/shower was heaven and really helped!
Labor for me was weird, it was waaaaay more pain that I could have possibly imagined, but by the same token, I coped much better than I ever thought I would. I guess we are built to deal with it! You will be ok.
If you Google "natural pain relief labour" you'll find heaps of links and information.
If you're into books, try Birth Skills by Juju Sundin. I tried a lot of her methods during my labour. Some worked and some didn't, but if you go in with a lot of different methods to try, you set yourself up well for success :)
