Rest and be thankful

  • I love the “Rest & Be Thankful” stage
  • The contractions may slow down, perhaps they hit a pause or they stop completely.
  • You have journeyed the most intense contractions; now is an opportunity to rest & recover
  • Baby’s head has opened the cervix fully and waiting for the messages to produce more Oxytocin for contractions to move the baby into the birth canal
  • You may even SLEEP – YES you could
This is not a time for anyone to try and rush this or force anything to happen.

Rest, Eat, Drink, Wee, Breathe, REPEAT or SLEEP
