  • squatting....when ever there is any bit of contractions, bend at a 45 degree angle into the contraction...that helps =]

  • Walking walking and more walking. And as MissKellee said "squatting".

  • labor starts when baby sends hormones through mommy signaling that the lungs and everything else are ready to enter world outside the womb....nothing (outside of medical intervention) is going to induce labor until baby and mommy are ready....and that is a good thing!
