Re: pain free labour?

I feel like I had pretty close to pain free labors...I mean, I managed drug free and pushing was easy. The key for me was as close to total relaxation as possible. I spent most of the time in the shower on a birth ball- or standing and just have to find what works for you to work *with* the pain instead of against it. I think pain comes when we are fighting against what our body is trying to do. Also being really conscious of relaxing my pelvic floor during cxs too.
I never checked into hypnobirthing, but maybe my own technique is similar. I wouldn't say I was in a trance or anything...just tried to stay very very relaxed.
