Embarking on the journey of childbirth is a transformative and intimate experience for any woman. While widely known pain relief methods like epidurals take center stage, there is a simple but lesser-explored tool in the realm of labor comfort: clitoral stimulation. As birthworkers, we often tell clients – what gets the baby in, also gets the baby out! Join us in this blog as we delve into the unexpected benefits and the pleasurable wonders behind using this unique method to ease the intensity of labor.
As taboo as it may sound, clitoral stimulation during labor taps into the science of pleasure and its impact on pain perception. By flooding the nervous system with pleasure hormones we call endorphins, this approach acts as a natural pain suppressor, gently lowering the intensity of labor contractions felt.
How it works:

While I could bet that you hadn’t considered this as a pain relief option, it’s now in your tool bag of comfort measures! And just like the others – breathing techniques, massage, etc – it’s easier to use in labor when you’ve practiced it. So start now!
