So how do you go about it so that labor can run smoothly? so that any unwanted bad possibilities do not occur? Check out the following tips.
1. Prepare and Build the Best Mentality
Building a positive mentality will be a factor that determines the course of the birth process. Negative thoughts can also stimulate negative behavior. Since the beginning of the labor process, the mother must be sure and believe that she will give birth normally. Positive thinking will make the mother more active in every act of labor so that the birth process can run smoothly. (Also read: Baby Boy Names )
2. Try To Get Time Off
A series of labor processes from the initial stage to birth will be quite a long moment, especially for mothers who are giving birth for the first time. For that, try if you get enough rest time before, for example, sleeping even for a moment to save energy and refresh your body. Because the loss of energy will be able to hinder the delivery process because it makes the mother unable to push.
3. Comply with all delivery helper instructions
Obeying all the helper’s instructions during the labor process will help you get a smooth delivery. The birth attendant will guide you in positioning for labor, inject some medications, or teach you pushing techniques. In addition, follow and also pay attention to all procedures so that the mother can push and position herself correctly when the opening is complete.
4. Do not hold urination and defecation
Just before childbirth, mothers are not allowed to hold their pee and defecate. A full bladder will eliminate uterine contractions and prevent the baby’s head from dropping. Holding back urination will also increase the pain in the stomach. If during contractions the mother feels the urge to urinate or defecate, immediately go to the toilet or if she cannot use the potty to urinate on the bed.
5. Adhere to Relaxation Distraction Techniques
One of the things that hinders the delivery process is the condition of the mother who often pushes before the time comes. If the mother is pushing before the complete opening, it is feared that the cervix will swell, which in turn can result in the fetus being unable to be born normally. In addition, this will drain the mother’s energy, especially when the time to push comes. To prevent this from happening, a relaxation distraction technique is needed during the contraction, which is taking a deep breath from the nose and expelling it through the mouth. By doing this technique the mother will not push. ( Read: Relaxation Techniques Towards Labor )
