6 Tips to Help Give Birth

Since the beginning of time women of all ages have to  give birth with more or less help. The truth is that there are babies born since the world is world. If all these women have succeeded, fear nothing, you will also. This is the mantra you must internalize in the next nine months.

It is natural that you have some fear of childbirth, of pain, of any complications that may arise, of what the recovery will be like, especially, especially if it is the first time, you will certainly have many doubts.

To begin with, there are two essential things you need to do to ease the process of giving birth: maintaining a healthy diet and exercising daily (a walk, for example).

In addition to these, we have six tips that will help.

6 TIPS FOR GIVING WITHOUT ANXIETY

1. GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND STUDY

We are sure that all our lives have heard “know is power”, right? Well, when it comes to pregnancy and giving birth is no different. Look for a childbirth preparation course with a proven team and good referrals from other mothers, sign up, do not miss classes and be attentive.

If you can, supplement the study, through the gestation, with a book on pregnancy or on childbirth. Why so much information? The more you know, the better you can prepare for the time of delivery and the safer you will feel because you will have a sense of control.

2. HAVE A BIRTH PLAN

Find out what type of delivery you want but bear in mind that this is not just about the procedure but also about other factors. It is important to decide in advance where you want to give birth, whether at home, whether in the maternity ward, whether in the public or private hospital.

The Pregnancy and Childbirth Association has developed a Birthing Plan that can print and select the options you want for your baby’s birth.

3. HAVE A PLAN B

In spite of this, do not stick much to the plan. In the sense that it is extremely important to be prepared for any unforeseen circumstances that require you to change your plans. If you have a plan B, that is, if you are open to changes, the moment you need it you will not be without reaction, nor will you be frightened and easier to control the disappointment of having to change plans. Try to be flexible.

4. DO NOT GO ALONE

It is possible (and preferable) that you do not want to spend this moment alone and now, regardless of the procedure, whether in public or private, you can already have your partner, your mother, sister, a cousin or your best friend with you.

It is also important to define whether you want the person accompanying you during the whole process or just at the moment of childbirth, for example. Having someone by your side during labor or even when you are going to give birth is a physical and psychological comfort you will not want to give up.

5. LET THE BABY DECIDE

Allow the baby to be born when he or she is prepared for it, unless, of course, there is a medical condition that requires labor induction or a cesarean section.

Besides, let nature take its course. Your body and baby are prepared for it, so the suffering for you and for it during the procedure and postpartum are smaller, there are fewer risks and recovery is faster.

6. FOCUS IS THE KEY

It is important to have something in which to focus your attention to distract yourself from contractions. Concentrating on breathing exercises is one of them but try to find the best distraction for yourself. Sing? To dance? Whatever it takes!
