QHOW HELP­FUL ARE BREATH­ING EX­ER­CISES FOR CON­TRAC­TION PAINS? I WANT TO AVOID PAIN-RE­LIEF DRUGS IF POS­SI­BLE.

ABirth ed­u­ca­tor and doula Gabrielle Tar­gett says: I can’t stress enough the im­por­tance of learn­ing how to rhyth­mi­cally breathe dur­ing a con­trac­tion. This not only stops you from hold­ing your breath and tens­ing up, but it also en­ables you to fo­cus on some­thing other than the con­trac­tion.
