Contractions usually last for about 1 minute when you are in active labour. Yes they can be incredibly intense and strong but it's just one minute. Then there will be a break of about 4-10 minutes where you will be pain free before the next one starts. This down time can be spent having a drink, rest, laugh or cuddling. Don't worry about how long you have left in your labour, just take each 1 minute contraction at a time. 1 minute is not very long and you can do anything for a minute!
