I’m all about creating an atmosphere that supports you in your perfect birth. Here are a few ways that you can create a space where you can totally relax and just go into labor land. Music is super important, so get yourself a good pair of noise canceling headphones and put together your favorite relaxing playlist. The next way I suggest is making your labor room, your labor land through essential oils. Actually this is my first suggestion. Smell can bring you back to a more relaxed state. I recommend creating a relax and calm blend to use during your pregnancy. So once you go into labor your body automatically goes into that relaxed and calm state that it has been conditioned to do throughout pregnancy. Relaxing and calming is the key for effective and efficient contractions. This blend is perfect for a back or feet massage in pregnancy or labor
8 roman chamomile
Put that in a 10ml roller bottle and fill to the top with fractionated coconut oil.
Simply rub in the palms of your hands, inhale, put it on your pulse points, the inside of your forearm, the back of your neck and behind your ears as often as needed. You can also use this as a comforting foot massage for relaxation during pregnancy or labor. Tip: A few drops of this blend in a relaxing bath is just what I order after a long stressful day. The next things, wearing your own labor gown can actually make you feel so much less like a patient and more like the birthing goddess that you certainly are. Last, but not least, bring your Birth Affirmation Cards to help keep you focused on the incredible goal that you have. You can find those on my website at theessentialmidwife.com.
