Childbirth is not easy. You may also face constipation as most of the food is fed by the baby, Labour can also be stressful and painful for the mother, but here are some tips which may make the delivery easier:

  1. SLEEP: Labour pain can take a toll on the mind and the body. So, full rest and good sleep are essential for the mother.

  2. SNACK CAREFULLY: According to PARENTS, fatty and hard to digest foods must be avoided during pregnancy because a too-full stomach can contribute to nausea during later the active stages of labour. Muscle contractions and rapid breathing during labour can also cause the body to lose fluids rather quickly. It is better to drink clear liquids if one is labouring at home, and, once one reaches the hospital it is essential to let the caregivers know when you feel dehydrated.

  3. BREATH COORDINATION: According to an article by tiny step practising breathing techniques helps in easing the labour. It also helps to keep the mind calm and reduces stress.

  4. STAYING MOBILE AND FIT: Movement can help progress the labour and relieve discomfort. Women need much stamina to get through labour, and regular exercise can help. American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists recommends that moms-to-be should get at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise each week, according to an article by Thebump. Regular workouts can also reduce workouts and excessive weight gain during pregnancy.

  5. MASSAGE:  Massages can prove to be good at any point during pregnancy but getting a massage during the early stages of labour gives extra relief. Even something as simple as a scalp massage can do wonders to relax the entire body.
