Anesthesia during labor is intended to increase the comfort of labor and, if not completely prevent the occurrence of pain, then minimize them. It is important not to lose the ability of a woman to control contractions and attempts and take an active part in the birth of a child.
In maternity hospitals, pain relievers are more often used in childbirth, which only slightly dulls the pain, but does not eliminate it altogether. While private clinics actively use more effective methods of anesthesia during childbirth.
Abroad, women often resort to anesthesia. Although in European countries specialists treat genera as a natural process that does not require rough external intervention (except for cases of development of pathologies and abnormalities during pregnancy). Often the woman provokes the appearance of intolerable pain, yielding to her inexplicable fear.
Nature has awarded a woman a unique ability to give birth without experiencing painful sensations. The true cause of unbearable birth pain lies in fear, terrible horror stories and stories that go around among pregnant and parturient women.
Fear sharply lowers the threshold of pain sensitivity, which makes one perceive even a slight pain, as intolerable and terrible. If a woman does not have abnormalities during pregnancy, she does not need anesthesia for childbirth. Of course, the uterus is greatly reduced during labor activity, but it does not have so many nerve endings to cause severe pain.
Obstetricians and gynecologists develop a lot of techniques that allow them to fight their fears and learn to control the condition of the abdominal muscles and the loins. Therefore, if desired, a woman can learn not to fear childbirth and control her behavior. No matter how difficult it is for a mother, her child is many times more difficult, because he makes enormous efforts to go through the birth canal, and ahead of him the unknown.
Mom should help his little crib enter this world as calmly as possible. Her fear is transmitted to the child, her muscle tension slows the birth, causes the fetus to beat her head against the pelvic bone, which often leads to trauma.
