Pain free labour is an achievable goal for the majority of women with a normal first stage of labour. Women are taught from an early age to fear going into labour. When they do they start secreting adrenalin, this causes changes in the body which cause labour contractions to feel painful. You can reduce adrenalin output by using relaxation techniques in pregnancy and labour. Once you know the truth, you have a chance to choose.

Having a Doula in Labour
Happy International Doula Month!
Post from the wonderful women at Orgasmic Birth.
All the time, I hear from women that they aren’t hiring
a doula - because they have a great partner, the nurses will be there, they have a midwife, or that their hospital is great.
like to ask - just because your car is safe, you trust the driver, and
the weather is perfect with nearly empty roads - do you not wear your
seat belt anyway?
are the seatbelts for birth - the continuous, supportive, agenda free
safety net that is there only to honor and protect your birthing space.
only is a doula there to protect your memory of birth, science and
research supports the many benefits including shorter labor, less use of
interventions, and healthy MotherBabies.

Doulas are what midwives used to be before all the paper work was heaped on us. We used to be able to rub backs and work with women in labour instead of sitting down writing about women in labour. And yet I have found that only Jewish women, who take birth very seriously, have a doula during their labour and birth. I love them, they do everything I wish I had time to do and they really help the women take control of their labour and as a consequence, labour much better than most women who do not hire a doula. I do not know how much they charge, could a normal lancashire lass even afford one? Please let us know if anyone out there has knowledge on how much you can expect to pay for a doula during your labour. Thank you.
