Steps to having a painless childbirth

Some of the steps toward having a painless childbirth are: First and foremost, to understand what labor is all about. After all, labor lasts one minute, and then you have a reprieve. If you can be in that moment, each minute, we can take just about anything. The problem with a lot of us is that we focus on what happened and what is about to happen. Therefore, we feel this incredible and overwhelming sensation of labor, but that one minute is, indeed, manageable. Nevertheless, you have to prepare. You have to prepare long and hard before you have a painless childbirth. Those steps involve self-hypnosis, with knowledge, with self-care, and also, with letting go of all the things that stand in the way of you trusting your body and yourself. You can do it.
