  • I read that question and answer. I believe what the answer was trying to say was to get some sleep aids so the woman could rest while she was in slow early labor. It doesnt induce or help labor along, just makes time go by quicker.

  • I've never heard of taking a sleep aid while pregnant- let alone when you're in labor. It's not something I would do- even if someone said it was safe.

  • sleep aids are safe to take during pregnancy that being said, they dont do much to induce labor except help you rest up maybe

  • Sleeps aids are a GOOD THING!!! I was in labor for 5 days!! On day three they gave me ambian. and day 4 and day 5, just so I could get some sleep! Most often when labor is induced, it is over night, they give you the petocin (sp) or cervadil(sp) and a sleep aid, the next morning you should be ready to have a baby.
