But the culture of fear and uncertainty surrounding the process of bringing a tiny person into the world meant that even she was unprepared for what it would be like. “The excitement died very quickly,” says Hann, who is from Canada and lives in Glasgow with her husband. “We’ve all seen the movies where the pregnant woman’s water goes, she is rushed to the hospital and by the time she gets there baby is about to arrive. Well, if you expect childbirth to be like in movies, it’s not,” she says bluntly. Instead, Hann’s first birth in 2012 was “traumatic” she tells The Independent. Founded four years ago, the PBM comes as part of a push for honest parenting, with mothers and fathers speaking openly about how tough having and looking after children can be.

Comprendre la douleur de l’accouchement pour mieux l'affronter

Qu’on se le dise, l’accouchement est douloureux ! Les femmes qui accouchent transpirent, gémissent, vomissent parfois, émettent des sons bizarres, perdent le contrôle sur leurs fonctions corporelles. Et pour bien accoucher il faut justement perdre le contrôle… oublier ses bonnes manières. Dans le processus de la naissance, il n’y a pas de contrôle possible, le travail se déclenche sans qu’on ne s’y attende, les contractions s’enchaînent à un rythme imposé et le bébé arrivera de toute façon au bout de ce processus, mais au bout d’un temps que personne ne peut prévoir à l’avance….Voilà ça c’est dit ! De la douleur et de la souffrance... J'ai une mémoire bizarre.

De la douleur et de la souffrance...

J'aime à dire qu'elle est émotionnelle. J'avoue avoir assez peu de souvenirs de mon enfance, de mon adolescence, ou même de mes études de sage-femme. J'ai même oublié des personnes qui, rationellement, n'auraient jamais dues être oubliées ! Et à côté de ça, certaines scènes me restent en tête, des années plus tard, sans raison intellectuelle possible. Partie 1 - Se préparer à la possibilité d'un accouchement naturel.

Devant l'imprévisible, l'incertitude, le chaos et l'inconnu, un minimum de visualisation positive et de préparation (psychologique, physique, matérielle) sert le bon déroulement de l'accouchement. L'essentiel reste que notre corps sait quoi faire. Il faut lui faire confiance. Ce corps de femme est physiologiquement constitué pour donner naissance.

"La préparation globale" ou comment faciliter l'accouchement

, j’ai choisi il y a seize ans d’aider les femmes qui avaient un désir d’accouchement naturel à une époque où les anesthésistes répondaient peu aux appels de nuit. Il fallait donc mettre au point une préparation « efficace » sur la douleur et la dilatation. Comment l’assurer au plus grand nombre de femmes, sans être systématiquement à tous les accouchements ? C’est là où l’observation et l’apprentissage allaient commencer et m’amener peu à peu, on l’a vu sur le versant psychique de l’accouchement, tout en gardant la rigueur du double regard : physique et psychique. Pain relief in labour: An A to Z of techniques to try. We all know that, for most women, labour can be painful - but there are many options for pain relief in labour that you can try.

Acupressure guide for labour. “I’m really nervous about seeing her in so much pain. Are there any points we can do at home to help take the edge off?” I was asked this question recently by a concerned father-to-be at his wife’s 39 week appointment. Pelvic press (Ina May's Guide to Childbirth) In labor. Rebozo sifting. Using the rebozo. Normality for labour and births. 6 is the new 4. By Janelle Durham, Kim James, Tracy McPhillips, Audrey Miles Cherney, Sharon Muza, Katie Rohs, Penny Simkin and Katherine Steen When ACOG released the "Safe Prevention of the Primary Cesarean" bulletin - it was hailed as a serious game changer.

We covered this article on Science & Sensibility here and here. Many childbirth educators, doulas and others simply changed their materials and teaching content to indicate early labor was now was considered 0 cm to 6 cm and called it good! In reality, nothing could be further from the truth! Families working through "early" labor were finding things to be quite intense and at times very difficult. Childbirth educators, we have a problem. In trying to be up-to-date, childbirth educators adjusted their teaching aids (posters, videos, and parent hand-outs) to reflect the changes: Early labor is now 0-6 cms, active labor from 6-8 cms and transition from 8-10 cms. Let’s review what “6 is the new 4” really is. Conclusion References Caughey, A. Cervical dilation is (now mathematically shown to be) unpredictable. I realise that this will not come as a shock to most people who read my blog and that many people don’t need research to confirm their experiences, but I think it is important to share the findings of studies which add weight to traditional knowledge and/or progress our thinking about everyday areas, and it is in that vein that I share the following news.

A team of researchers in Italy has confirmed that, in spontaneous, naturally progressing labour, the rate of cervical dilatation is largely unpredictable. That’s about it really. Sure, they did really clever maths to get there, but I don’t suppose that many people will look that up, because we know this already. Women who are left to their own devices will labour at their own pace. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower, sometimes in response to what is going on around them and most times quite unpredictably.

Is epidural my only option? The Roadmap of Labor: a framework for teaching about normal labor.

By Penny Simkin, PT Regular contributor, Penny Simkin developed the roadmap of labor as a teaching tool. Today, Penny shares how she uses the roadmap of labor to help families in her childbirth classes to understand normal labor from a physiological standpoint. She hopes that her students will take away an understanding of comfort and coping mechanisms along with recognizing the emotions a mother might be experiencing and how a partner can help with both the physical and emotional aspects.

Vaginal exams in labour (*Trigger warning) I decided to write this blog post after a discussion in #MatExp about the use of vaginal exams (VE’s) in labour. There were concerns that women felt pressurised into consenting to vaginal exams in order to be admitted into birthing units in labour or to access pain relief/the use of a birthing pool etc. It was discussed that vaginal exams can feel intrusive and be upsetting and that the evidence base for using them in labour is not strong.
