Proven Ways First-Time Mothers Can Psyche Up Their Minds For Labour
Lots of pregnant women most especially first-time moms get scared to the extent of freaking out just at the thought of childbirth. Getting pregnant was and is never a big deal when you legally married to your partner however the problem is with teenagers who get pregnant without planning.
Some pregnant women get worried for the sake of nothing they just go through the depression stage were they get worried about almost everything from the looks of their kids, fear of death, fear of delayed delivery, even to the extent of being cut open for delivery.
These and many more causes fear and sleepless nights putting them in the bad state of mind which can affect the health even before childbirth. Who you are is a result of what you know, what you read and the people or things you associate yourself with, in that same light whatever wrong exposure these women are exposed to would do them a great deal of harm than good. Knowledge is key for making decisions during pregnancy and childbirth however too much exposure of pregnancy and childbirth can scare the hell out of you.
Childbirth is not supposed to be a time of fear but a time to celebrate the LORD because lots of women out there, do not stand the chance to be fertile in the first place more like to even give birth, so you as a mother must celebrate it and give all the Glory to GOD.
Instead of listening to things that would trouble you, spend time on the right books, if you are Christian spend time on the Word of GOD, if you are Muslim spend time on the Q’uran, just fill your minds with fruitful and productive things to build your faith up and make you positive out your delivery.
If you can afford, a childbirth class taught by a registered labor nurse or a certified childbirth educator, fine then I would urge you to take up that class however if you can’t, engage your husband or mother in fruitful conversations that would bring you joy and peace or read books about pregnancy and all. This is to help you learn the basics of the labor process, including how to know when it’s time to get to the hospital or birthing center.
Choose wisely your care team and birth setting, in order to avoid any mess or complications during childbirth. Surround yourself with people you trust and are someway somehow comfortable with, this is as important as having the best possible result.
Where you give birth, has an impact on you than your actual health conditions. Pay any price to have the kind of labor you hope to have.
However, if you happen to have a relationship established with an obstetrician or other care provider, you may want to consider hiring a doula.
A doula is a trained companion who is not a healthcare professional and who supports another individual through significant health-related experience, such as childbirth, miscarriage, induced abortion or stillbirth, or non-reproductive experiences such as dying.
Don’t be lazy, try you best to move every day, by having moderate exercises that help you feel your best throughout your pregnancy and labor.
Try and have a 30-minute walk a day and doing so, helps get your body in shape and releases stress right up until D-day.
Psyche up your mind, practice manual, and mobile meditation. This helps both first-time moms and experiences mothers manage their fears, as well as reduce symptoms of prenatal and postpartum depression.
We differ in every way and that adds to our uniqueness. Childbirth plays by different sets of rules. Because every woman or mother is different in diverse forms so what might work for you might not work for them in any way.
So this would teach you to have and own your own experience as a mother, you can’t afford to risk your peace and most especially your health listening to how other mothers worked their way out of pregnancy or childbirth. What makes mothers blessed is that personal adventure they go through right from pregnancy to childbirth and ensuring the child grows and all
It is very important that as a mother you plan out how you’d want your delivery to be, because as small as that factor may seem it adds to the success of safe deliveries. You don’t need anything huge to plan just know the kind of people you want around you, ensuring that these people would fuse confidence, faith and positive stuff inside of you during childbirth.
Some plans or things to consider is the type of support you want during labor (is massage okay, or just verbal coaching, who you want as your labor support people (your partner, a doula, a friend, or relative), whether you’d like to be able to move around and try different positions, if you’re open to using drugs for pain, who you want to cut the umbilical cord, whether you plan to breastfeed, whether you want your baby to spend time in the nursery
Your partner can help you figure out whether other preferences are worth including, so definitely share your plan with them as your due date nears.
Just give yourself some space for change just in you are left with no option to change.
Bear in mind that the labour and delivery journey as a woman and mother is just beginning. The real work is raising the child into a blessing.
