|Coming to your Senses|
By Dee Clarke, Fit 4 Two Instructor and Doula
Focusing on your other senses can be an effective distraction and pain coping technique for labour and childbirth. Here are some simple things you can do to stimulate your senses and make your birth experience a more pleasurable one.
Sound - We have all heard that playing soft music can help you relax during labour, but be sure to also bring music that awakens and inspires you to dance. Moving and changing positions can be just what you need to get labour rolling and assist with manoevering baby to the optimal birthing position. Labour is exhausting and lively rhythmic music can help you find your second wind.
