A recent research has pointed out that women who fear childbirth are the worst sufferers of labour pain. It has been found that women under the fear of delivery experiences longer labour period as compared to women without fear.
Normally, a woman experiences six hours of labour at the time of delivery. However, fear lurking the mind of to-be-mums can stretch the pain time to eight hours. The research was conducted by the Norwegian researchers.
The co-author of the study, Samantha Salvesen Adams, said, "Our finding of longer duration of labour in women who fear childbirth is a new piece in the puzzle within this intersection between psychology and obstetrics".
The findings of the study have been published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Women feel scared of childbirth because of many factors. Among those factors, first child, social insecurity and history of abuse are some of the most common factors.
It has further come to light that tensed mothers give birth to babies after going through either emergency deliver or cesarean section. Women need to relax at the time of delivery. Families and relatives should support new mums during crucial time of pregnancy.
