Just some preparation, your intuition and lots of love.
Avoid the word pain
Your partner also needs to be careful about how they interpret and respond to how you express what you’re feeling. Particularly if you’re vocalising or moving around (which are perfectly normal), it may seem to your partner that you’re in a lot of pain, but you may actually be doing really well with the sensations, in which case a suggestion of pain could sap your confidence and be demoralising. So, they should avoid the word pain completely, unless you want to talk about it.
