Breathing during labor plays an important role in pain management of contractions and the acceleration of labor and prevention of hypoxia in the fetus.What is considered to be breathing at birth right and be sure whether to start training during pregnancy?
Childbirth, and especially the first - this is a great stress for the woman.Even if she attended courses for pregnant women and theoretically know all about the process of the birth of a child, confused at the present struggles can be easy.But the main thing to remember - is that correct breathing during labor should provide good oxygen the baby, that is, between breaths should not be large gaps.Hold your breath for a few seconds is possible only in one case - if you want to delay the premature began attempts that may lead to cervical fractures.Learn
need several types of breathing.Breathing during labor is different in one or another stage of labor.
the first stage of labor is recommended so-called abdominal breathing.This is done when a deep breath, in which the stomach has to as if to approach to the spine (hence the name "abdominal").Exhale smooth, slow.Inhale and exhale through the nose is possible as well as through the mouth.Second, it must be said, it is more convenient for many people because of pregnancy rhinitis (in other words - the common cold).Breathe is performed at the beginning of the fight, exhale toward the end.
In the second period, the nature of labor changes, they become much longer and the gaps between them are reduced.Accordingly, and breathing at birth in the second period should be different.Take a deep breath and exhale should be divided into 4-6, that is, you need to breathe like a dog.This breathing also helps a lot to keep no time to start pushing.
When it comes to the expulsion of the fetus time, applied technique described above, if the fetus through the birth canal is moving too fast, which is why you may experience birth trauma and the mother and child.If everything is in order, the woman works as follows.She takes a deep breath mouth and struggling makes an effort, in which the voltage must be given exactly the abdominal muscles and the perineum, but not the face.For one deep breath straining woman three times.If the voltage falls on the muscles of the face, in the future mother waiting for red eyes from burst blood vessels for a few days.Yes, and such misconduct delay the whole process, the child suffers.
That is why it is very important to practice proper breathing (but not during exile) during pregnancy.Maximum relaxation, which gives proper breathing during labor, allows you to make them not only tolerable, and sometimes even almost painless, but also contribute to the saturation of the baby's blood oxygen, which is always to some extent lacking in childbirth.
