Contractions: Everything you need to know

Contractions - they're totally normal, completely natural and all part of giving birth. But despite knowing all of this, some of us can still find ourselves worried about Contractions, especially when we hear about how damn painful they can be.

But remember that old phrase 'knowledge is power'? Well, it's true. The more you know about Contractions, the less daunting they'll seem and the easier they'll be to deal with.

In fact, that motto is a favourite of Stella Williams, midwife at The Portland Hospital. She believes that preparation is key and that's why ante-natal classes are so important.

We agree, the more you know the better, that's why we asked her everything about Contractions - what they are, how they feel, what can you do to reduce the pain and much more.
