Using a comb during labour is one of my favourites. It is related to acupressure points. By holding the comb and squeezing it against your ‘P8 acupressure point’ it can help to block pain signals during labour, as your brain concentrates on only one sensation as part of the gate control theory. Thank me later!
“Hello! I would like to share my birth story with you ❤️ I had been religiously reading your flash cards in preparation for my labour. My beautiful baby boy was born at home in a birthing pool after 23 hours of labour. During which me and my partner relaxed at home, snacked, napped and watched a few of my favourite horror movies! We had your flash cards spread all over the table and my partner was chanting floppy face floppy fanny to me through my contractions. I used only a comb and a tens machine through all my contractions and gas and air for the last hour while pushing- baby boy was out after one hour of pushing in the pool. I had only a small graze and feel so proud and blessed with how my labour and birth turned out. Thanks to you I was able to have the home water birth I wanted. Hope you are able to share my story I’m so happy with my choices and the knowledge I gained from you xx”
