  • First and foremost don't panic. Remember that your baby is on the way and needs all the help you can give. So relax and start doing your breathing exercises.

  • You can start moving, walking in the room if you feel like it when you have mild contractions.

  • You can have sips of water but during delivery when your labour is established you will be asked not to eat anything. This is mainly in case if you need an anaesthetic later on.

  • Your husband or friend or mother-in-law can be with you and can help you doing the breathing exercise with you or can massage your back to relieve the pain if that helps you.
