The breathing techniques can help you during labor. Yogi Bhajan always said that if you control your breath, you will control any situation in your life. This may be easy to say but challenging at a situation like this one, and because of this practicing beforehand is essential.
Long Deep Breathing is one of the techniques to use between contractions. It stimulates the pituitary gland, which helps with the secretion of Oxytocin. Oxytocin regulates the contractions and the flow of oxygen.
The doctors recommend drinking water during labor, ideally at a natural temperature to keep the body hydrated.
You can also use visualization and see the baby coming out to this world.
