  • Yes, especially if you are already in labor.

  • I did a ton of walking when pregnant with my 2 1/2 year old. I went into labor, contractions 3-4 mins apart for 2 hours. Went into the hospital and was only dialated to 1cm. I don't think the walking helped me dialate at all.

  • it can help the baby move down. contractions are really what make you dialate though.
