It gave me something to concentrate on and helped with my breathing, asides from that I don't think it did much - certainly didn't take away the pain.

I didn't have any trouble with it, the rattle gave me something to focus on during contractions and I don't think it got above 25-30% which I think is fairly low.

It made me lose the plot. I was crying uncontrollably because I thought I'd already had my baby and the nurses had taken him away. Never again!

With dd1 it made me vomit
With dd3 I was so off my face it wasn't funny and once I got to 8cm it kind of stopped working

I don't have any experience with it during labour but I broke my hand in 3 different places quite badly a few years ago and was given it while they re-broke 2 of the bones as they had set in a bad position, it made me extremely dizzy and I felt completely out of it didn't do a lot for the pain but gave me something to focus on until I started projectile vomiting I chose not to use it during labour because of this

I used it for my first birth, just on half strength, found it was enough ti make me relax, but I think it gave me something to chew on more than anything

It sent me loopy. It was like my brain got stuck at the top of a contraction and wouldn't snap out of it (The pain).

I used it for ds2. I didn't like it. It progressed so no time for an epidural and he was posterior so extremely painful in the back. I asked for gas as I hadn't tried it before and really it made me feel so completely out of it! Every breath it was like my brain was zinging and I felt so drugged. I hated it at the time but I wouldn't let them take it away from me either because it gave me something else to focus on I suppose. Then after I got stitched up I vomited everywhere! I wouldn't have it again.

With DD the pain from contractions was making me climb the walls and vomit, gas calmed me right down.
DS was induced early and i was given gas when they were breaking my waters, didn't feel a thing after 3 unsuccessful painful attempts. I love it!
