I had a painless birth (well the pushing hurt, but labor was painless). I did some relaxation practice (like hypnobabies) and I think that helped quite a bit. The nurses didn't believe me when I was ready to push, because they said I shouldn't be able to hold a conversation but when they checked me, I was ready to go! I couldn't feel most of the contractions. It is definitely possible, but I was just lucky I think lol.

#2 on the way!

my first labor was induced with pitocin and hurt like a mo fo. i didnt get an epidural, but ill be honest - i totally wanted one.

2nd labor, walked in to the hospital pushing because i didnt realize i was in labor til i was pushing..i think largely because it was SO different than the pitocin labor. it was uncomfortable, but not painful

3rd labor i knew i was in labor and thought i was further than i was when i got to the hospital. i was only 3cm, but 100% effaced - i wouldve guessed myself closer to 7cm or something there was a midwife i really disliked there and my labor stopped until the nurses kicked her out - once she was out i went 5-10 in just a few hours. this labor was SO intense and overwhelming. there was so much pressure with each contraction i could barely stand it. i didnt want an epidural or anything because it wasnt painful - but it was absolutely overwhelming.

Just a note, if you want no pain without mental focus - i think the only way to do that is epidural. And thats not a guarantee! I can only remember a few moments of actual pain during my two births and both of those were went I started to loose mental focus. I highly recommend reading the hypno-birthing books. Its all about letting your body take over, open up naturally, and staying calm. Good luck!

Common conception is less demanding to accomplish in light of the fact that there are no medications accessible. Through Your Pregnancy, ladies who practiced amid their pregnancy had a 35 percent decrease in the need of pain medication and a 75 percent decrease in maternal exhaustion. Practicing not just builds your brain body relationship, it makes natural pain relief called endorphins.

I had two natural, painless births. I used Hypnobabies and it worked PERFECTLY both times. It was intense for sure and but I did not feel any pain. It's such an easy program and there are so many amazing success stories. I made a website about it if you want to learn more (url in my sig below!)

Painful and painless are such subjective terms. I tend to have a high tolerance for pain and labor well, however that doesn't equate painless. Two of my five were sunny-side up, that was a different kind of pain, but not unbearable. It's labor, it's going to be painful. :-) With my first I took 2 bags full of items I had read that would help during labor, haha we didn't use one thing, not one thing from either bag. All I wanted my husband to do was rub my back the WHOLE time. Poor guy! Just listen to your body, if you want to stand and rock, stand and rock. If you want to squat, then squat. You get the idea. Focus on your breathing, music you enjoy. Concentrating on what makes you comfortable, more than what will relieve the pain. The pain is there for a reason, embrace it and let it do it's job getting that baby out

Some mother's truly don't have pain. Some have excruciating pain. Most are somewhere between the two extremes. I have honestly seen women make it to 9cm still joking and laughing and barely feeling it. It really is different for us all!
