Video exercises to perform during labor

Here we explore a series of exercises that are very useful during labor. It will not be easy to put them into practice as when you are comfortable and quiet at home, but it is worth seeing and trying them.

All pregnant women try to prepare themselves as best they can for labor both mentally and physically through the appropriate exercises. We read books, we listen to experiences, we read stories of childbirth that we have also collected on our site, to become familiar with this event that on the one hand frightens and on the other you can not wait to face.

When that time comes, however, it is not said that we will be able to put into practice everything we had read, studied or followed carefully in the preparatory courses.

This is because emotionality can play tricks even if we usually have good self-control!

In short, the moment of childbirth is an extraordinary event and as such sometimes it must be managed and lived in the moment.

However, this does not mean that we can not try to put into practice some exercises and useful techniques to favor it and in this our companion can help us who with a more lucid mind than ours (perhaps) can help us remember what we have to do.

Do not panic, try to breathe in the right way and relax as much as possible so that you do not have contracted muscles.

As the midwife explains in the video, for back pain in the lower part you can use warm pillows with spelt and lavender husks inside.

In the first stage of labor it is important to favor the upright position by moving but without getting too tired.

Useful lunges against the wall and to increase the dilation is fine the squatting position.

During the second stage, positions that favor gravity are preferred. To slow contractions, the sphinx position is recommended.
