Re: pain free labour?

My birthing experience was drug-free, and it wasn't very painful at all, although I wouldn't call it pain-free. Here's what helped me:
1.valarian tea helped me sleep through 3 days of contractions. (Valarian is the natural herb that valium imitates, and it definately helps you sleep through pain and laugh about it, too.)
2.Natural Childbirth the Bradley Way, this book reminded me that relaxation is the key to releasing pain.
3.Laboring in a tub of hot water was the greatest pain killer ever! It was like being weightless, and made labor so easy!
Good luck for you with whatever you choose!
