Baby Wisdom Tip 620 – when mum feels hot during labour

__labour_and_birthIf mum is sweaty in labour a cool flannel is a great idea. Women in labour are

like hot water bottles, so a regular cool wipe down is ideal and she may wish to suck on the flannel if she feels sick and doesn’t wish to drink. For an even cooler cloth, put some water and ice in a bowl and put it in that.

If her hair keeps flicking in her face, help her tie it up, clip it back or put it behind her.
