  • i think that works and i've suggested it at different times for friends. i had a really sucky long labor and ended up csection plus on ivs myself for over a week after having my baby. i wish then i'd realized that deep breathing in and long strong breath out the second a pain starts could stop it. Breathing like that has helped me deal with my kids different hospitalizations and losses in my family. I just do that breathing randomly in stress and its a big big help.

    The typical he he wheww labor lamaze breathing did nothing at all for me. it didn't help me through any contractions didn't help me through pushing.

    breathing right which ever way in what ever situation slows down the heartrate and slows down then stress.

    Good for you for breathing through your stress. Just remember to do it when the stress hits for the most help not during or after, then it's too late to do much help.
