Labour & birth

I have a lovely Twitter friend who is currently enduring dreadful labour pains, although there are many articles out there it's sometimes nice to hear from those who know. I've had 3 children and can honestly say each pregnancy was different. I can't fully remember the first 2 but definately reme,ber the labour with the last and what worked really well for me was doing plenty of walking, I remember walking through all the halls in the hospital and would not stop until I was ready to have him! The other point I noticed was when I was getting early twinges I would sit down and they would pass, however this also paused the whole process so I persisted and leaned over the table and swayed from side to side. This eased the pain but kept the process going! What words of wisdom do you have?

Having had two very different pregnancies/labours it definitely helps to keep as mobile/upright as possible rather than lay still on a bed. Gently rotating your hips during contractions helps take the edge off (think Wii Fit Hula Hoop) & I found it more comfortable pushing on all fours rather than laying on my back.
