  • It only works if your body is ready for labor.

  • I didnt try that but I tried about everything else lmao. Walking, taking bumpy rides down a dirt road, walking lol, sex, nipple stimulation, and just everything. Nothing worked. I learned from that babies will come when they want to.

  • If your body is showing signs of pre-labor (loose stools, loss of mucus plug, more frequent braxton hicks etc) and you're coming close to your due date, yes, walking absolutely helps. I walked a mile to the Chiropractors and back (and got adjusted while I was there) and went into labor the next morning. To help speed up your labor process, they'll have you walk around the hospital too.
