At the parent training school, the instructor has to teach you breathe properly to relax during labor. In a nutshell: during a seizure, begin to inhale more slowly and deeply through the nose, and then exhale slowly and deeply through the mouth. Because pain can make you forget and reflexively start breathing quickly, intensively, hastily, dog-like, which can cause hyperventilation (excessive supply of oxygen due to a disturbed breathing rhythm), your spouse or partner should be able to breathe properly himself. Then, during a difficult period for you, you will be able to rely on his advice and only repeat the rhythm of correct breathing after your partner, trust his instructions.

The baby is able to perform the basic movements necessary for survival outside, namely: breathing, sucking, swallowing, reacting to light, sound, taste or touch. The baby’s skin is covered with cheese grease, which protects the baby’s skin from being constantly “in water”. Over time, the lubricant will help the baby move through the birth canal!
