Childbirth - A Calm Experience

Jul 27, 2008
From the time a woman finds out she is pregnant the only thing on her mind is the thought of child birth. The process is a mystery to most and it can be terrifying and exciting at the same time. They know there will be pain, but every woman feels pain differently making it hard to decide how painful childbirth will actually be. Pain can be managed through many different ways.

One of the first questions a woman is asked by her OBGYN is what sort of birth they want. One woman may want a natural childbirth, others may want an epidural or maybe an under water birth. The choices are endless and making this decision is one which should not be taken lightly.

The thought of squeezing a baby the size of a watermelon through an opening the size of a lemon is a scary. You know there will be pain and it will take hours. You know it will take weeks to recover from either natural childbirth or a c-section and typically you are not able to be on your feet for long periods which is unreasonable with a new baby. Some women become so nervous that they psych themselves out and the whole process becomes unpleasant and the baby is born into an unhappy environment.

There are many treatments out there for women who want a pain free childbirth. Some are natural while others require drugs. An epidural will help the mother feel minimal pain, but can sometimes leave the mother out of it or she may be allergic to the drugs and not know it until they are administered. Lamaze can help reduce pain during natural childbirth but still the conscious thought of pain can cause tension and anxiety which can create high blood pressure causing danger to both mom and baby.

Many women are experimenting with a new form of childbirth pain management called hypnoanesthesia. Hypnosis allows you many things such as relaxing through the pain and contractions which will keep your blood pressure low and anxiety under control. You can avoid using medications and be alert and ready to hear your baby's cry for the first time. Hypnosis is thought to decrease labor by at least three hours making it seem just a little more manageable. The mother will experience shorter recovery and a mother can choose when to feel labor and when not to, simply by hypnosis and the ability to control your mind.

Another appealing thing about hypnosis is the technique can be transferred to a nurse, husband or other partner and they will be able to help the mother maintain the state of relaxation through different cues and suggestions which will help her throughout her labor.

There are ways out there to clam yourself through childbirth but they do not always have to involve drugs and you do not always just have to deal with the pain. Child birth is a happy, exciting and beautiful experience for all new mothers. As a new mother it is your choice how you want to delivery your baby, but before you make a decision for your baby, you need to decide what will put both of you at ease, research all your options before making this important decision.
