ABSTRACT
The article discusses to taking a positive view of pain associated with childbirth can make a huge difference in coping with pain during labor. Fear and anxiety can greatly influence the perception of pain. When pregnant women are anxious to produce adrenaline, which inhibits the production of endorphins, this leads to feeling more pain and being less able to cope with it.
