We all dread the moment when we are told we are having a big baby! Here are some great points in this BellyBelly article explaining why it doesn’t mean that it will be more painful and thankfully it makes sense!
Being prepared is power, and having a birth plan really helps. Consider your pain relief options, do you want a natural birth where possible or would you consider medical intervention, what type and at what point, include these in your birth plan so everyone is aware. Don’t forget to pack your Elle TENS+ as well, labour TENS is a tried and tested natural method of pain relief which also allows you to be in charge of your pain relief. You can use it from the first contraction and through your entire labour, it even has a boost button to help with contractions. Have a chat to you midwife or medical professional about what pain relief options you would prefer.
