Suicide of Woman in Labor Prompts Chinese Hospitals to Rethink Pain Management
“Breathe in and exhale slowly. Now imagine you’re walking on a white sandy beach. Feel the waves wash over your feet.” This is how He Chunlei, a certified hypnotherapist in Shanghai, trains pregnant women to manage the inevitable pain during childbirth.
“When the waves come, they bring comfort; when they recede, they take pressures away. Three, two, one, time to relax,” she tells a class of expectant mothers.
The recent suicide of a woman in labor has got China talking about why options for pain management during childbirth weren’t widely available.
