Has anyone else ever been told that drinking lots of fluids and laying on your left side can help stimulate labor and dilation? I had an appointment with WIC today and the nurse told me to lay on my left side and drink lots of fluids because this would help regulate my contractions and progress dilation. I was in labor and delivery last night for about an hour with irregular contractions; that is why this has been suggested. I am 38 weeks and 4 days along. Has anyone else heard of this or done this and had it work?
