  • I had back labor with all three of my kids and it is rough. You have all of the contractions in your back.

  • Your very uncomfortable and feel alot of pressure in your lower back, a heating pad helps some but I had it and it was horrible.

  • Imagine someone stabbing you in the lower back using a spoon and pushing it as hard as they can, all over. At the same time, the pain is radiating into your hips and no matter how you breathe or position yourself, there is no relief. IT HURTS!! I had my first child only using IV meds and am pretty sure I had more pain when I broke my arm in the 5th grade. I had back labor with my second and required an epidural. It took me out!!

  • I haven't had it, but I hear it's rough.

    There are ways to avoid it. And if you end up with it, ways to cope.

    You can still have a natural, med-free delivery!
