Your mom just got an epidural.  That's a shot in her back that numbs the pain that the contractions are causing.  She is much more comfortable now. She is enjoying crushed ice- which is one of the few creature comforts which can be afforded her. 

Your dad is getting a little hungry now, but he'd feel a little bit guilty eating when your mom can't eat....
