I found it amazing and never let it go. It helps you relax and i just felt drunk for a few seconds and like i was floating away.

I had it with my first and loved it! I had to keep sipping on cold water though between contractions as it made my mouth and throat so dry x

I am looking forward to trying it with this labour, for something to focus on if anything, if it makes me feel drunk and not care about the pain then bonus lol.

I was too late for ANY pain relief last time so I am feeling rather anxious about how I am going to cope.

I loved it! Really helped with my first labour, made me feel 'drunk' I tried to go without it for my 2nd birth but that was too intense so asked for it and it did take the edge away, no 'drunk' feeling that time round but helped regulate my breathing and concentrate on coping with each contraction, I'm going to try and not use it this time round but only to see if I can do without but I won't hesitate asking for it if I need it.

I love gas and air so much, it was a real wrench to give it back to them after I had my last child, I'd delivered LO and the placenta, been checked for tears and all done but I was till sneaking puffs on it .
For me it really helps me disassociate from the pain; I would take some big puffs and kind of float off . I could still feel the pain but it was a bit dreamy and I wasn't worried about it. I'd take a couple of breaths of normal air to "come back". It was funny, I'd be all spaced out and then if the midwife said "we need to just listen to the baby now Eleanor" I'd be back in the room.
I had it from 6cm until part way into pushing with my 1st; I got a bit lazy so they took it off me for the rest of pushing (boo ). With my 2nd I had it from 8cm through pushing and I really appreciated having it for pushing as that is definitely my worst bit. With my 3rd I had a quick and intense labour (51 minutes) and I was desperate for the gas and air, I got it at about 6/7cm and had it for pushing. I found it helpful for my breathing as I was focusing on taking deep breaths of the gas and air so it stopped me from rushing my breathing.

I loved it! For me it was the difference between wanting an epidural or not. They use it in pretty much every hospital here in the UK and its usually the first form of pain relief they will offer you in labour, I really dont understand why its so uncommon in parts of the USA?

I hated it. Had 3 puffs on it, threw up into 7 sick buckets and then threw it across the room (the gas not the sick lol) I never wanted it anyway but the midwife kept pushing me to try it so I took it to shut her up. I won't be having it again this time round.
