Consider hypnosis- learn how to stay calm and in control. Did you know it can shorten labour? Did you know that hypno babies are calmer, sleep and feed better ?
When you arrive at the hospital ask your midwife to lower the lights and wait a little while before an examination (unless there is a medical need to do this straight away).
