  • I have only gone through one pregnancy but my contractions were very strong and i only felt them in my back. One of the on call doctors who was a women said that in her experience back labor is more painful than regular labor, but I wouldn't know since that was my first time being in labor.

  • I had back labor w/ my first child. The thing that helped most was a labor pool. The water helped

  • i did have a bit of back labor, but it was nothing compared to the contrax i felt in the front. personally, i would just go to hospital when the back pains were coming consistently, like 3 or 4 minutes apart for over an hour, just like with any other kind of contraction. gl!!!!!!!

  • My sister had back labor with her first daughter, she said it was extremely painful because when she recieved ehr epidural it only numbs your abdomen not you back so she got no relief
