Hi Bronwyn!

I just wanted to share my experience. I had my (only) child 28 years
ago when I was 26 years. Living in Denmark I had the option to deliver
at home. I wouldn't say that I was very well prepared, but I had an easy
pregnacy, was normal fit, did yoga for pregnant women and some
meditation practice. I read Ina May Gaskin, Michael Odent and
Frederick Leboyer.
During labour I found that the best way for me to deal with it, the
pain, was to kind of go into my body and the pain and just
thinking/concentrate on/imagine expand, expand, expand over and
over again. It kind of became a mantra in the situation and worked
well as I didn't felt overwhelmed by the pain. At a point there where no
more intervals between the labour pains, just like waves rising and
falling, but I still managed to surf them. The midwife though, felt pity
for me and said at a point that I could try to press (for relief), which I
did without my body being prepared for it. So it just resulted in a stop
in the whole process for I think almost an hour until I again went back
to the earlier practice of accepting the pain and be with it with my
expanding intention. Then my body began to cooperate again and I
could move into the pressing part, even though I never got into that
strong urge to press, so it took a little longer. All in all from the first
labour till my son was on my belly it took 8 hours, and sometimes my
son have claimed that he has memories of being born.

I wish you the very best when it's your time.
Good luck, Erikka
