During early labor it is very common for labor to start and stop over a period of days or even weeks. Your body is slowly preparing itself for active labor. Allowing your body to go through early labor at it's own pace is best. Walking and activity can help stimulate contractions and keep your labor going.

If you labor stalls during active labor your doctor will probably recommend pitocin to jump start your labor and to help make your contractions regular. Walking and activity can help as well.
