Re: Can baby's position keep you from going into labor?

Yes, the position can make a labor stall or a baby to not be born since not all positions a baby can come out (transverse being one). With ds2 I couldn't get into transition because his shoulder was at the cervix instead of his head. That was keeping me from progressing. What I did was put my head and shoulders on the floor and my butt in the air to help him reposition himself. Within the next contraction I was in transition and he was born shortly after words. That's one trick. However, babies are born in OP all the time, but OP can make labor longer and more painful.

You could be in prodomal labor. That is the days/weeks leading up to labor that feel like the real thing. I had that with ds2 as well for 8 days prior to giving birth.
