Going into labour

… labour at home
Once contractions become fairly regular, write down the time between each contraction, and how long each contraction lasts.
Call your midwife when you are fairly sure you are in labour.
Distract yourself with television or Netflix, play a board game, or do crosswords.
Relaxation and visualisation – breathe in gently, sigh out slowly, think positive thoughts.
Stay mobile, go for short walks.
Release tension with a massage for your neck and shoulders.
Have a warm bath or shower.
