  • This is not a medicinal option, but I am telling you that focusing on an object and breathing correctly during contractions will do wonders to cope with the pain.

  • Those other drug have been reported not to do anything for pain, they just make you loopy.

    The best pain management is confidence, free movement, control, water, and support (of course no induction meds). the body produces natural endorphins.
