When the contractions started surging through her body, she felt helpless and overwhelmed.
She decided to masturbate.
It worked as a natural pain relief and made childbirth a soothing experience.
...with an epidural, gas or nothing at all being the main choices. Angela underwent an epidural during her first birth that left her feel like she had no control over her body.
She shares her experience, 'It's not a sexual urge whatsoever,' she said. 'It's my body saying "hey, natural pain relief is where it's at". It's about exploring your options and exploring your choices in childbirth and taking ownership of your experience on a physical and emotional level.'
Reason 1. What gets the baby in gets the baby out. Nipple, vaginal, clitoral stimulation, kissing, intimacy, affection; these inspire the flow of hormones like Oxytocin, Endorphin and Adrenaline in the body.
Masturbate and then voila! pain magically gone.
