Shower or bath

Many hospitals and birthing centers have showers in their labor rooms. Some even have bathtubs or whirlpool baths to help ease the discomforts of labor, particularly those of active labor when your contractions are intensifying. The soothing, warm water helps relieve pain naturally by blocking pain impulses to your brain. Warm water is also relaxing. This is a method of pain relief you can try at home, too, before heading to the hospital or birthing center.

If you use a shower, you can sit in a chair and direct water onto your back or abdomen with a hand-held showerhead. Ask your labor coach to bring a bathing suit and join you.
