How to have a peaceful birth?
- helping your body stay relaxed.
- giving your baby lots of oxygen during contractions.
- letting your support person know that a contraction is starting or ending, so they know when to help you.
- letting everyone in the room know that a contraction is beginning.
Can you meditate through labor? Using meditation, breathing, hypnosis, or visualization will not completely shut you down/off — you can hear and respond if needed — but it will allow your primary focus to remain inward in order to cope with the intensity of childbirth. If you are pregnant, it’s almost never too late to learn these techniques.
How can I be mindful during pregnancy? Try spending five minutes (set a timer with a soothing alarm sound) sitting in a chair or on the floor with your eyes closed and focus only on your breath. Follow your in-breath and out-breath. You can even say in your head “in” and “out” along with your breath.
