What you need to know to relax before delivery
1 Protection measures
If you’re worried thinking about your delivery, rest assured that doctors take all the necessary measures to protect you from bleeding, infections, or hypertension…
It’s therefore important to choose a maternity hospital known for its modern technologies and professional team.
Your obstetrician will keep your health conditions in mind during delivery. If you suffer from some symptoms like gestational diabetes, don’t hesitate to ask her about that to ease your mind.
Be glad, now you can get an epidural shot before delivery to relieve pain.
Rest assured that you won’t feel any pain from the needle’s prick. This is because the specialist will first use a very small needle to numb the back before receiving the epidural.
After about 10 minutes, the pain of contractions starts to recede.
Remember too that the anesthetic drug is injected away from your spinal cord. So you will not be paralyzed.
In any case, make sure you choose the delivery place that has a skilled anesthesiologist.
You’ll hear a lot of stories and experiences about delivery pains. Some women exaggerate in their description.
It’s therefore better not to listen to these stories, and to express your fears before your doctor. From her experience, she will definitely reassure you. And why not? Consult your psychiatrist, who will in no doubt ease your mind.
