Revealing The Secrets To Pain-Free Natural Childbirth

Secrets To Pain Free Childbirth

by ADMIN - Tracey Rose on October 11, 2011

Sydney mother Tracey Rose had to convince nurses at Manly Hospital she was in labor with her first child after she admitted to feeling no pain.

Tracey is now revealing the secrets of her pain free natural birth and wants to help other expecting mothers enjoy the miracle of childbirth without drugs.

“It’s not because I was trying to be brave, it’s just that I didn’t need any pain relief. I was in a total blissful state during my daughter’s birth and was actually looking forward to the next contraction” says Tracey Rose.

Tracey arrived at the hospital around 6am, but midwives and doctors didn’t believe she was in labour and requested she either go home or be induced. They suggested she was a long way off actually having the baby because she didn’t look like she was in any pain.

“That’s because I wasn’t!” Tracey recalls …

However, following an examination midwives realised Tracey was already 4cm dilated and baby Honey Rose was born in the water just 6 hours later.

Figures from many private hospitals in Sydney show less than 5% of women have a natural birth, while that figures only rises up to 15% for public hospitals.

“I think it’s because many women are totally freaked out about childbirth and see other women experiencing a lot of pain” says Tracey. “If they were educated more thoroughly about their bodies, coping mechanisms and the effects medical intervention has on them and their baby more women would be able to have natural and comfortable labours.”

Tracey credits hypnobirthing, practicing daily meditation, surrounding herself with positive birth stories and yoga to her empowering birth experience. She says she stopped reading any pregnancy magazines and many of the popular pregnancy books and refused to listen to any horrible birth stories from friends and family.

Instead she only read positive birthing books and watched videos on YouTube, but says all of this wasn’t easily accessible and had to go searching for it.

As a result Tracey created www.NaturalChildbirthWorld.com to bring all the best information about Natural Childbirth from experts around the world to one place.

Tracey says … “I’m really hoping to help other mums realise they were built to give birth and if they have the right education and preparation, they can have a wonderful birthing experience”. “You will always remember the day you gave birth, so I’m hoping many more women can create beautiful and empowering memories instead of ones they’d rather forget”

Yep, they sure do … PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE and organise the most supportive environment you can for the big day – whether you’re at home or if you’re going to hospital, pack meditation/hypnosis CD’s or iPod. I had my iPod on the way to the hospital, but then they had a CD player there, so I could play my HypnoBirthing CD’s etc when I got there. I also made them fill the bath, so I could birth in there, whereas I used a birthing/yoga ball for my 2nd baby :)

Lolz
I’m glad you didn’t Have pain, but childbirth is painful. A 5 to 10lb baby comes out of your vagina though a 10 cm hole OUCH. No amoount of positive thinking will stop the pain-you got LUCKY. Moms get epidurals because they work, not because they areignorant or fearful.

Hi Stacy,
I understand it is a very emotional subject and some women get upset when I say it’s not painful. I definitely understand it can be, but it wasn’t luck for me. There was a LOT of preparation that was involved to achieve this result and I did it not once, but twice. And … I also know of many other women who have a similar story.

I would never say or think anything negative to women who have an epidural because every woman and baby’s situation is different, but we specifically put this site together for women who are searching for answers and aspire to have a natural birth and comfortable birth.

Thanks for your comments – we appreciate everyone’s point of view :)

Hi Chanine,

Great question! This is quite common for pregnant women, especially those who are looking into making their birth a more positive experience. In my first birth, I just politely stopped my friends and said “I’m quite scared at the moment about labor and it’s stressing me out, so I just can’t listen to any birth stories at the moment … I hope you understand”

Otherwise if I felt rude saying that I would try and change the subject or laugh and tell them “ooh, the baby just moved! wanna feel it?” or you could excuse yourself by saying you need to go to the bathroom, have an appointment etc.

And … if you do have to listen, try not to get emotionally caught up in their story – it’s THEIR story and every birth is different. If you prepare and educate yourself, then your birth has a much better chance of understanding your body and how you can make birth a beautiful experience.

FINALLY … Immerse yourself in lots of positive birth stories – Good Luck! :)
