Back Pain During Labor

Contractions can often be felt in the back and in the belly. Most women feel contractions in their back similar to menstrual cramps. The pain will probably come in waves. If you are in early labor and experiencing back pain try to pay attention and time the contractions to figure out where you are in the labor process.

To relieve back pain try getting on all four. Put heat or cold on your back. Sit in a warm bath or take a shower.
