During the last 10 years several comprehensive studies show a number of additional benefits.

The ability to relax reduced fear and apprehension, enabling more awareness of the process, while diminishing the experience of pain.
Other studies show a decrease in complications related to the birth, fewer nights in the hospital, an average of 3 hours shorter time in labor, and an absence of postpartum depression.
