    Labour Inducing Exercises

     7 strategies in which you can make the labour easier during the pregnancy period.  

    Written on 14 August 2018

    Giving birth is one of the most challenging things you will ever do. In fact, for most women, it will be the most challenging they will ever do in their life. Knowing how to make this challenge easy on your body and mind is critical.

    Here are 7 strategies to make labour easier for you:

    • Discuss the Process of Childbirth

    Doing your research on the topic of childbirth is great. However, talking and discussing things with an experienced professional like your doctor is a completely different thing when compared to doing your research.

    A birthing plan should include various things like your physical condition, the position of the baby, whether you should take painkillers during the labour, who you want with you during labour, etc. A birthing plan can include anything you want to make your labour easier and smoother for you.

    • Take a Childbirth Class

    Mentally and physically strenuous for the body you should be finding the best childbirth classes in your area. Preparing in advance is an excellent way to make sure the whole process goes smoothly. A childbirth class prepares parents for everything from water breaking to cutting the umbilical cord themselves.

    • Keep a healthy lifestyle

    To make labour smoother and faster, you should be adequately rested, labour is an extremely strenuous and extracting process. You should be sleeping at least 7 hours or more every day. Pregnant women need to keep their weight in check and do regular exercise. 150 minutes a week of moderate physical activity is what pregnant women should be aiming for.

    • Eating dates

    Many studies over the years have shown that eating 60 to 80 grams of dates daily one month before the due date is one of the most beneficial and low effort things you can do to make the whole process less strenuous on your body. Dates have a chemical compound that is similar to oxytocin, the hormone that is responsible for contractions. Dates also help dilate the cervix and help in making the process quick and effortless.

    • Ask for a Massage

    Getting a massage in the lower back area can help reduce the pain sensation and help women going through labour. The massage also has a psychological effect where the woman feels connected to her partner.

    • Practice Breathing Properly

    Breathing properly can make an extremely painful experience a lot less painful. Breathing helps in reducing pain and relaxing the body. It can also help the woman push more efficiently. Proper breathing ensures that the body has enough oxygen and the mother does not pass out from a lack of oxygen amidst the labour pain.

    • Distract Yourself

    Labour is a long process and the sheer exhaustion of it can do a number on the mother. Average labour can last between 8 to 18 hours. Listening to music, taking a shower or watching a movie is a great way to speed things up and make the process less strenuous for the mother.
