Managing Pain during Labor

We discussed in space therapy section, how to relax the body and  be aware on the body parts starting with toes, feet to the head upwards relaxes the whole body. Consciously relaxing  toes, ankles, calves, knees, thigh muscles, abdomen, stomach, intestines, heart, lungs, liver, pancreas, gall bladder, hands fingers, shoulder, back, neck, face and all parts and finally brain, helps great in pain management to a great extent avoiding use of pain medications. .

   Witnessing  pain and giving positive statements to the body and mind to integrate in the whole labor process makes it easier and less stressful for both mother and child.

Witnessing Pain

    In many instances we have helped a lot of friends to relive body pain in different situations like illness and during child birth. Instead of becoming one with the pain, if the individual witnesses the pain, there is a great relief. We have been told that  by witnessing the body undergoing pain, they were able to bear pain and not suffer. In other words, there was pain but no suffering. This witnessing is very helpful during child-birth labor. A few mothers who followed our instructions of witnessing pain were able to due wonderful pain management without administration of pain killer drugs.

    Only by witnessing the pain and the body, one can actually relax well even when there is pain. Witnessing act also gives power and strength to handle any situation.

    It is very interesting to note that in Vedic Culture, this witnessing act has been ingrained through many rituals (see space section for details ). In rituals imagery and visualization is done first and finally leads to witnessing.

    This witnessing should be practiced from day one of pregnancy and tremendously helps in complications free labor. Every time when the doctor or mid wife touches the body for examination, practice this witnessing act and you can see what a difference it makes.
