Fear - Tension - Pain: Learn how to break this cycle
When fear is triggered in the human body there is an immediate action called the fight or flight response. This response activates the defense muscles to ensure our survival: our brain and heart focus on reacting to the danger that created the fear therefore we don't feel relaxed, but more tense.
During birth, this means that the uterine muscles will not receive enough blood to function, and the body will only be ensuring that the vital functions are working.
Birth does not need to be a fearful moment if the birthing woman is familiar with the process and the steps, and above all prepared. With breathing techniques and visualisations you can cope with your body and be in complete alignment during every stage of the birth.
By breaking the Fear-Tension-Pain cycle you will be able to release the hormones - oxytocin - that your body and baby need to birth.
