Breathing Techniques

During labor, different techniques for breathing must be adopted by the mothers so that they are able to ease off the pain easily without having to strain more than usual. Breathing helps in availing the necessary amounts of oxygen for both mother and the baby and so adequate breathing must occur in order to sustain the health of the mother and the baby.

Mothers must not panic at all or rather show various signs of fear which may induce more and rapid breathing because this will lead to using more muscles in the body. More energy is usually required by the mother during labor and so in order to conserve such energy constant breathing must be evident. Panic breathing may also cause lower levels of oxygen in the body, a situation which may go on to affect the overall health of the baby.
