though not a HB, with my first the weirdest thing helped me lol
I had to have someone (my mom or DH) rub thier fingertips rhythmically on my belly during contractions. It gave me a physical focal point. That and just talking to myself and reminding myself everything was normal and to relax.[/b]
That's called EFFLEURAGE I think. I have read "THANK YOU, DR. LAMAZE" by Marjorie Karmel before each of my births and I HIGHLY recommend it to EVERY pregnant woman. Anyhow, one of the laboring helps WAS exactly as you described only the woman was trained to do it to herself. Interesting.
ESTHER GRACE WAS BORN ON MARCH 23RD, 2009: 4:15 PM, 9 POUNDS, 20.5 INCHES. ANOTHER WONDERFUL HOME WATER BIRTH!!!
The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world.
