Trust Your Body And Surrender
The more you can trust your body to do its job, the more you can relax and let labor unfold. Many women, myself included, have the tendency to want to control everything, but labor isn't something you can control. Instead, you have to breathe, relax, and ride it out. Visualizing contractions as waves you ride to the top of the sensation and then come back down again is a great way to distract the mind and let go.
