    The few key ingredients that will help create that fantastic cocktail of hormones that helps your labour progress.

    1. You need to feel safe and uninhibited. If mum feels stressed and anxious her body releases adrenaline which are the brakes of labour. When mum feels safe and not afraid her body produces oxytocin and endorphins – these are labour helpers! When you feel uninhibited you can easily slip into that primal part of your mind that regulates labour.

    In Reality: Mum will automatically go into psycho mode when labour sets in so stay clear until she is at least in the hospital surrounded by witnesses should she feel the urge to beat you up!

    2. You need to feel unobserved – don’t text everyone that your labour has started. You’ll be plagued by well meaning friends and family….and you start to suffer from a kind of labour performance anxiety….you start to think that you’re taking too long….(here comes the adrenaline again !!)

    In Reality: Do not turn phone off as mother in law will have a panic attack and drive over you coming up the garden!

    3. Dim lighting. Get your candles out and hit the dimmer switch. Bright fluorescent lighting inhibits the hormonal release by stimulating your ‘thinking’ brain.

    In Reality: Turning the lights off makes women in labour easier on the eyes!! Especially if you don’t want two black ones!

    4. Excessive conversation also keeps you in your reasoning and analytical part of your mind so rest is important and those relaxations CDs.

    In Reality: Oh take the advice and just SHUT UP! Speak when spoken to!

    I know it’s a bit of a stretch for mums and dads to associate labour with romance……

    Even Dad’s sexy hypnotic voice has a role to play in getting your baby out (after all Dad’s sexy hypnotic voice helped get the baby there in the first place)

    In Reality: Come near me with that and you die a very slow death!

    Have a labour project that requires low mental and physical activity….think
    Rent a few funny DVDs – laughter creates endorphins – your labour helpers!!

    In Reality: Just this once turn the football off and hand over the remote controls with no hesitation unless you want the remote stuck up ya a*s permanently!

    Partner can run you a warm bath….andlight the candles…..

    In Reality: Do not use all the hot water and have to leave your woman waiting for it to heat back up again!

    Partner can cook you some nice food….and encourage you to stay hydrated

    In Reality: A curry and bottle of beer is not what she has in mind!

    Partner can give you a relaxing massage…or foot rub…
    In Reality: Don’t touch her feet you will get a kick in the head!!

    Partner can tell you how beautiful you look
    In Reality: LIAR!

    Partner can put on some nice music – any slow easy listening music that has good memories for you
    In Reality: Fire starter is not an option!!!
