How to cope with pain during labor

What helped me is realizing the pain was the way in which baby was brought down and out. By focusing on that fact, I could cope with the pain because my focus was no longer on the pain.

I used the breathing techniques I learned in Lamaze class.

I also whistled. Yep towards the end I was literally whistling, just another way to transfer my focus.
