Birthing Comb | Birthplace

Need a natural pain relief for labour? Keep it simple and non invasive with a comb. Yep a comb!

I started to research how to use a comb for pain relief after I spotted a birth picture where a mother was holding a comb in her hand while moving through surges in a birthing tub. It turns out, combs have been used in birthing for centuries and at one stage midwives were taught about using them for pain relief in labour.

They work for a couple of reasons. The teeth of the comb applies acupressure to points the hand that create a distraction and a new focal point for the brain to concentrate on. It also plays a part in the gate control pain theory, nerve endings in your hand send messages to the brain and distract it away from the sensations of contractions.

Now, I also saw an opportunity to give YOU something to focus on. The comb is the perfect spot for some guidance and reassuring words.
