Comfort Techniques For Labor

ANSWER: “Comfort techniques are a very important part of labor and there’s a lot of very simple things that you can do to provide relief during contraction, something as easy as movement, being able to freely move about in order to allow the baby to move down and allow things to be a bit more comfortable as they do so. Counter pressure to the lower back and to the hip area is very, very comforting and it’s an easy thing to do even if a mother is not able to get up and move about freely. And heat would be another really great comfort measure.”
