- The discomfort or pain caused by contractions can often be alleviated by changing positions.
- You may use relaxation, visualization, vocalization and other comfort measures to decrease the pain of contractions as well.
- Your baby is still moving during labor. This is typically less movement than before labor, but many moms can still notice the movements that their baby is making.
- Fetal monitoring may be used to monitor contractions as well as your baby's heart rate.
