for Natural Childbirth
Looking for tips to avoid the labor pain of
childbirth? Some of the best labor pain tips for an expectant mother are listed below. These tips are all based on
reiki relaxation technique. You will see why this is so
important for your body. I hope you will find these labor pain tips for your natural childbirth helpful in
cosmopolitan cities or in remote villages where there is not a doctor.
REIKI Relaxation is one of the most helpful techniques for pain relief. Let your body do what it
is supposed to do. While your uterus is contracting, relax the rest of your body so your energy isn't working
against you. REIKI Relaxation is something that should be practiced throughout your pregnancy. There are
several different ways to do this. It is good Working with your labour partner or your husband throughout
your pregnancy to find out what works for you, for example to stroke your hair. For someone else is may be
massage. It's funny to think that relaxing is a SKILL. The following are some suggestions to try for
- bathing or showering
- listening to music
- deep breathing
- Yoga poses
Massage is a wonderful labour tip. Having your partner give you a massage not only relaxes you
but it also gives your partner a chance to be a part of the labour process. It promotes closeness and
intimacy. Reiki Relaxing takes practice so, that means that you'll also have to practice reiki
massage. You need to find out what works for you and what relaxes you. And heck, asking for practice
massage is a good way for you to get a massage every week or so?
Bathing or Showering
Bathing is an obvious labour tip. I shouldn't need to explain how wonderful a bath feels even if
you are not in labour. Just having the feeling of the water on your body is an instant massage. I have to say
that taking a shower was the best way for many to deal with any labour pain after drawing CHO KU REI on the
shower or your bathtub. You may not ever want to get out of the shower.
Reiki Music can be such a relaxing medium. It can take you to another plane of consciousness. It
can also evoke such memories and choosing the right music that puts you in the place of total
relaxation is a powerful feeling.
This is something too, that should be practiced throughout your pregnancy. Experiment with
different types of music and see what mood it puts you in. Try something new, you may be surprised. Another
benefit of doing this is that having music surround you that comforts you during your pregnancy will make you
a happier and more content pregnant woman. And we all know that a happy pregnancy makes for a happy baby.
Your little one later on in your pregnancy can also benefit from the tunes.
Reiki Deep Breathing
An often overlooked labour tip, reiki breathing is something that also needs practiced often
during your pregnancy. Reiki Deep breathing can do wonders for a stressed out or nervous mom in labour. In
Yoga it is called Pranayama breathing. Breathing correctly or concentrating on your breathing will
help oxygenate your blood which in turn oxygenates the baby. I think this is such an important tool to use; I
have included some more information with exercises and tips on breathing.
Reiki Meditation is a deep form of relaxation. Being able to be still and concentrate on
positive ideas instead of dwelling on pain can not only help with pain relief but can also help you along in
your labour? For you, the labouring mom, to be able to be totally relaxed and to have a grip and feeling on
what your body is doing and feeling can only speed up labour and have the body do what it knows how to
do. Letting your mind relax and give your body the chance to do the work. Meditation can be anything from
just sitting in a quiet room with peaceful thoughts, listening to soothing music, practicing the Pranayama
breathing, or actually doing yoga. There are aids out there to help you practice
Practicing yoga during pregnancy
Practicing yoga during pregnancy can give you the tools you need to help with pain relief during
labour. As stated above, the breathing techniques are of high value and if you have done yoga in the past you
know the feeling you get right after your practice. You have a feeling of peace and inner strength. One of
the most important poses to do during pregnancy is the cat or the Bidalasana pose. A variation of this
pose is similar to the pelvic rock exercise.
This position is so important because of the benefits to your body which in turn, benefit your
baby. This exercise relieves pressure on the lower back and increases circulation and can improve digestion.
But most important, is that this position gives the baby the most room for movement and can sometimes help in
repositioning the baby from a breech position.
This pose is also very helpful in labour. This pose is done by getting down on your hands and
knees, knees spread shoulder width. Now, arch your back and then release, tilting your pelvis while doing
this. During labour, just being in this position can help reduce the pain.
Visualization is a form of meditation. This should be practiced often as should all of these
forms of relaxation. Try to pull out a memory of something positive, run this story over and over through
your mind. Make this memory a trigger for you feeling peaceful and centred. Think about the first time you
met your partner and the things that made you get those butterflies... think about your favourite vacation
when you were truly relaxed and content. Maybe picture how you will feel when that precious little life is
handed to you for the very first time.
You must try to visualize as if you are
breastfeeding your baby. Try enjoying in your mind that moment when your baby is sucking your breast. Visualizing
such a situation after you’re your reiki attunement prepares your body to get pregnant easily.
I hope these labor tips will be helpful to you.
