1. Soak in water
Immersing yourself in warm water when going into labor can prove to be quite effective in reducing the pain caused by contractions. This is because when you sit back and relax in the bathtub, your body muscles will relax due to the warmth of the water. If on the hospital where you give birth there is a bathtub, you can try to flush your stomach with warm water gently using the shower. The gentle pressure will have a comfortable effect on the feeling of pain in the lower back.
2. Create sound
Pregnant women often moan or make sounds when they are in great pain before childbirth. Relax your shoulders and create a low, deep sound to make your breathing lighter and relax your tense pelvic muscles. You can also sing, count, or repeat words from reading material. This aims to distract you from the pain.
3. Adjust the body position
Doing activities that do not go against Earth’s gravity will help reduce your pain, for example by opening your pelvis. You can sit casually with your back against the wall or your husband. This method is very popular among pregnant women to prevent other interventions that could occur. But usually the doctor will prevent you from doing too much movement because it will be risky for your baby’s condition.
