Decreasing Labor Pains: A New Parents Guide | Mother Rising

As a childbirth instructor, I am fascinated by pain, our responses to it, and how to make painful experiences better. Because of this, I have found many, many ways to decrease the suffering of women and to make birth more enjoyable. And yes, I believe birth can absolutely be enjoyable!

Over the years I have written down and shared with you all what I’ve discovered about decreasing labor pains. Some of it is more obvious information, like changing laboring positions. And some of it is less known and obvious. For example, did you know that when you keep your eyes open during an experience of pain your perception of pain is lessened? Crazy, but true.

The following is a compilation of Mother Rising’s best work on the subject of decreasing labor pains. I hope that you click through, learn a few things, and are able to apply them to your upcoming birth.

PS – Make sure to read the comments on How to Get Through Transition Without an Epidural. They are quite inspiring!
