What do I do during labor? I bring a calmness and comfort level to the room — since I'm calm and comfortable with labor. I work a lot by verbalizing during contractions, whether it is reminding the mom to relax in certain areas (her shoulders, back, face, etc) or that the contraction is coming down or even suggesting visual pictures to focus on — this seems to help mom glide through the contractions. I have learned that there is great comfort in a reassuring touch at a certain point of labor, or just extreme commendation for the amazing job she is doing during this intense project — labor. There are more tools to use for comfort in labor than just medication. Perhaps changing the temperature (hot or cold), turning on music, changing position, light massage, aromas, using water (such as a tub or shower). I'm always trying to think ahead — what position would help at this point of labor. Do we need to encourage gravity to move the baby down, encourage the baby to rotate in position, encourage mom to rest for awhile, etc. I'm also taking some pictures with a disposable camera (if okay with the family) for your birth memories. I do take notes of times and events for a record to provide you with a Birth Story after the postpartum visit. Hopefully it will bring you pleasant memories of your birth as the years go by.
