Giving birth hurts, but every birth is different. How much pain you will have, no one can predict. There are many ways to ease the pain. With or without medication. At home and in the hospital. Following a pregnancy course can help cope with the pain. Of course, the midwife is there to guide you in this.
For many women it is enough to be massaged during labor and to assume various positions. In addition, a source of heat is a good reliever of the pain. This can be in the form of a bottle of hot water, but also in the form of hot water, such as a shower or a bath.
If you’d want to have medication for pain relief, there are several possibilities. The midwife will explain to you.
