During my last birth, I was sitting on a birthing ball next to the side of my bed and my hand found a mattress handle. When my pain was really intense I focused on holding the mattress handle. When it would easy up, I would ease up on the handle and once I felt another contraction coming on, I would frantically search for the handle. It made me feel safe, secure, and in control. I did not realize that I had this connection with this mattress handle at the time and it is not something that I would have ever assumed would work for me, but it did.

With my second birth, we had candles and soft music going in the background. I had planned on enjoying them during my labor, but honestly, I don't think that I really noticed them. They did make for a very nice birth video though, lol.
