Baby is on their way, and you are SO excited, Mama! You’ve read all the books, talked to your healthcare professional, and are all set for this natural birth experience you’ve heard so much about! But maybe you can’t shake that looming concern of how you’ll manage your pain without medication. You’re in luck! There are SO many methods of pain management out there that have nothing to do with any kind of meds, Mama! We’re on the blog today to round up a few of our faves!
This is a huge one that often gets overlooked. Many times, when the labor pain hits, many mamas think laying down in a bed is the way to go. But did you know that pain is your body’s signal that it’s time to move? Think about sitting around the house or at the office–certain positions cause you to move and adjust…without even thinking about it! Why should this be any different? Ask your medical professional to help you stay mobile as long as possible–take a walk, dance a little, just stay on the go!
This one is a little more popular and non-medicated births are often associated with laboring in a tub! Water is an incredible vehicle for pain relief. And while water births are a wonderful way to go, taking a shower can actually be even better for you! Hopping in the shower allows you to direct the stream and pressure toward your pain points better–let it massage your belly, back, and even neck! Wherever those labor pains are hitting the hardest!

During my pregnancy, I had to make multiple decisions on how to handle my birth and the future of my child — and it wasn’t easy! But one of the decisions I made was to preserve my newborn’s stem cells with a company called CBR (Cord Blood Registry®)! You can read more about that decision here.
CBR made the entire collection process so incredibly simple that it was a non-event the day I delivered! I had so much on my mind and emotions were running high as we made our way to the hospital for delivery; I was so thankful that I didn’t even need to think about this! All the paperwork was handled ahead of time, and all I had to do was remember to bring the collection kit with me in my hospital bag and remind my nurse. After birth, a quick call to the courier and it was picked up from our hospital room – I didn’t even realize it had happened!
After having my son, Luke, I truly feel that this was one of the best choices I could have made for my family. Once you have your child, you will do anything to protect them, and using CBR has been a great way to put my mind at ease knowing that his cord blood stem cells and cord tissue are safely stored for our family in case a need were to arise. There are many conditions which may be treated with a cord blood stem cell transplant; they have been used for decades by transplant physicians in the treatment of various cancers, and blood, immune, and metabolic disorders. Additionally, early research is in progress studying cord blood and …
