Early Labor Coping Strategy - Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi
Usually in a first pregnancy it takes 12-14 hours before a woman is ready to deliver. Surprisingly, the stronger the pains are the sooner the baby is likely to come. When the pregnancy pains are milder, it is likely that the labor will be an extended one. The best way to cope is to be relaxed and stay calm. Anxiety or screaming will only delay labor which could also lead to frequent examinations. A hot bath or deep breathing exercises will help. Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi further explains pain relief options available to women who are undergoing a prolonged labour. For more information, visit cloudninecare.com
How to manage labor and delivery pain? - Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi
When a woman is in an active phase of labour, continue with your regular deep breathing exercises or walking or yoga. However, if the pain is too much to bear, the pregnant woman can discuss pain relief options with the doctor. Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi explains the various types of pain relief options. There may be side effects of these medicines which could cause drowsiness in both the mother and the baby. For more information, visit cloudninecare.com
Role of partner encouragement during labour - Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi
In Cloudnine Hospitals, we encourage the husband to accompany the wife during all pregnancy visits to the hospital. This care should also continue during labour. There is more bonding and participation between the couple during labour. Ideally, the partner should remind the pregnant woman to relax and encourage her to be strong.

Pregnancy Water Breaking - Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi
What happens with the water breaks during pregnancy? When there is a gush of fluid, women are advised to wear a napkin and confirm if it is a urine leak or a water bed break. If the napkin is wet, and clear it is normal. If the water bed breaks and there is a greenish discharge then it is an indication that the baby has passed stool. Immediately inform your doctor and go to the hospital where your doctor will advise you on the next course of action. For more information, visit cloudninecare.com
Is it safe to schedule baby's birth date? - Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi
Is it safe to schedule your baby's delivery ahead? If the pregnancy is normal or it is a low risk pregnancy, it is advised to wait till the due date and have a natural delivery. However, planned delivery is advised when there are medical or surgical reasons in the case of a high-risk pregnancy. Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi explains when to plan your delivery in this video.

When does a woman move into active labor? - Dr. Chitralekha Dambekodi
