Pain in Labor- Breaking the Cycle
It's human nature to fear the unknown.
In labor, fear (and the stress that is created as a result) can produce hormones called catecholamines, that can interfere with labor.
Think about it: when you're afraid, you're tense. When you're tense, things hurt more. Then, you become afraid of the pain which leads you into the Fear, Tension, Pain cycle.
You've got to break, or even better, prevent the cycle.
