Doula Leanna's reference guide for coping with contractions
This is a guide to take with you for labor. It has all this doula's tips and tricks for coping with contractions and comfort measures during birth. It discusses mindset and affirmations, scripture and prayer (if that's something you want), distraction, breathing and vocalization, relaxation techniques, hydrotherapy, warmth, cool down options, movement and positioning, counter pressure, and pain medication options.
