* Breathing during pregnancy:

You can learn how to breathe properly from 3-4 months of pregnancy. Exercise should not take more than 10-15 minutes a day. Train in different positions: kneeling (this physiological posture reduces the pressure in the pelvis), lying on your side, standing, sitting. So you can see how different parts of the body relax.

* The first fights:

During this period, the contractions occur at long intervals, pain does not occur. Breathe slowly, at a normal pace. Save your strength. If possible, you can sleep or continue to do your usual things. Do not panic and do not disturb your body.

* Intensification of skirmishes:

When the contractions intensify, there are pains. The cervix in the mother begins to open faster. Start controlling your breathing. During this period, it should not be arbitrary. Take a deep breath through your nose at a rate of 1 to 4 (at the beginning of the contraction) and exhale very slowly through your mouth at a rate of 1 to 6. Try to relax and breathe naturally in the absence of contractions. Thoughts about pain will not help to relax. Start following the clock, count the number of contractions and the time interval between them. This will help to temporarily abstract and distract. Change the position of your body between contractions - this will also ease the condition.

At hyperventilation there is a feeling that there is not enough air, there is a feeling of anxiety, dizziness, a slight tingling of the fingertips and face. Get together, put your hands folded by the shuttle to your face, start breathing slowly, lie down if possible.

When contractions begin, which are difficult to tolerate, and previous methods do not help, the type of breathing is used "dog-like". During the break, breathe slowly, and when it intensifies, breathe quickly, shallowly. This period of childbirth is very exhausting for the mother and during breaks the woman often falls asleep, waking up with the onset of a new one.

* Expulsion of the fetus:

Press your chin to your chest, cover your eyes better so that the vessels do not burst. Listen carefully to the midwife, following all her advice. At each fight you need to push 2-3 times. At the same time collect air, releasing it as with constipation. No need to push when the baby's head is already out. Continue to listen to the advice of the midwife and doctor, until the complete expulsion of the fetus and placenta.
