Does the thought of labor makes you terrified? Not knowing what to expect, on the other hand, only increases anxiety which in turn can make the delivery even more painful. In order to help you prepare for the big day, our Babylifetime.com team has decided to take a closer look at what happens during labor and how painful it really is.
To help you get a better idea how labor feels like, we have asked moms to describe their sensations when they went into labor and how they dealt with the pain. So if you want to know more about other women’s experiences, our Going Through Labor section is a great starting point. Besides lots of information about labor pains, you can also find lots of information about other labor related topics including different stages of labor and of course, signs of labor and how to distinguish real contractions from the false ones.
Since things do not always turn out as expected, our Going Through Labor section also covers topics such as labor induction, a procedure that may be used to speed up the delivery if your medical team has concerns about your own or your baby’s health, or if your little “kicker” feels too comfortable inside your belly. But while some babies seem like they could stay in there forever, others are too eager to greet the world. We have therefore also decided to take a closer look at preterm labor including its causes, risk factors, potential health risks for your baby and what you can do to increase your chances of having a full term pregnancy.
