Why is home birth less painful?
When a woman is comfortable with her surroundings and feels in control and more relaxed, her body releases Oxycontin, which helps the uterus contract. Her body also produces a hormone called Endorphin that helps reduce labour pain and the body is less likely to produce adrenaline, which interrupts labour hormones making labour more painful and slow.
