A MUM has claimed that her labour was ‘100 per cent pain-free’ and hit back at mums who said it is excruciating.
TikTok user Meg, who posts under @flourishingmother, uploaded a video providing reasons why it doesn’t have to hurt.
She wrote: “‘There’s no such thing as a painless childbirth.’ Yes there is.
“Modern medicine/Hollywood has made ppl believe birth is scary.
“Millions of women have had pain free childbirths.
“In how to avoid pain, you need to release fear.”
Meg recommended doing “daily affirmations to break fear of contractions.”
She also advised that you practise “visualisation” explaining you should “visualise the baby dropping into your birth canal”.
Meg also said you should visualise your body “opening up slowly, like a blooming flower.”
She said: “Keep your jaw muscles loose by breathing deep and exhaling through ‘horse lips’.
“Fully relax into each contraction.
“Hire a good doula who can support you through your pain free childhood plan.”
She added that her last birth was “almost 100 per cent pain free.”
Many disagreed with her approach, with one saying: “It’s not painless even with epidural.”
Another said: “Telling people essentially they are birthing wrong if it’s painful is beyond ridiculous.”
However, some agreed with her: “My grandma always said it is a mindset thing.”
