NB: I had just been served a meal.. so I would have fallen under the "excited about being fed" fainting category. I asked Nurse Amanda if she has witnessed this happening to anyone during labour and she said adrenaline usually prohibits it. Fingers crossed she's right. I'll just have to keep my eyes shut and have a chupa chup!
Anti - Fainting tips (I'm obviously not and expert in the field)
- Eat regularly
- Carry a fan with you at all times
- If you feel faint, lie down and put your legs up
- Stay cool and hydrated
- Carry snacks at all times
