These are some natural methods to ease your pain between contractions.
A: ask for information: the more you know, the more relaxed you'll feel. Read about labour and birth on BabyCenter and ask your friends and relatives about their experiences.
B: breathe rhythmically, and relax as you breathe out. Practice deep steady breathing to help you relax each day during your pregnancy and you will be able to do the same when you are in labour.
C: cuddle your husband, and talk with him about your worries about labour. Or have a hug with your mother or sister and tell them how you feel.
D: drink sips of water in between the contractions.
E: eat carbohydrate-rich foods little and often if you feel hungry, during the early stage of your labour.
F: feel free to have the fan or AC on max if you feel hot.
G: groan and moan: making a noise is a great coping strategy!
H: hold your birth partner's hand if you have one. Or take a religious or a holy object with you that you can hold to give you courage and good luck.
I: imagine your baby who is sharing this journey with you. Your baby moves down through your pelvis with every contraction.
J: joke with your birth partner and be jovial with the staff attending to you; keep things in perspective!
