If I've already started dilating and baby has dropped.....

if I walk, does that help me dilate more, or is that only once labor has begun?

  • my dr told me to walk to help, we went hiking, and walking and car rides(heard it helps) which turned into mudding trips with my fiance in his truck. but best thing is sex. if u walk and have sex it WILL speed it up significantly in my opnion neways.
