1 Bump

Stalled labor

Went to L&D and was admitted to the hospital. I dialated to 4cm, 50% effaced and the baby is at a -2 station. Well my labor stalled after about 12 hours at the hospital! How in the world can I restart labor? Please help, I am in pain and miserable. Thanks.

  • This happened with my first delivery. I didn't want an epidural so they gave me something else that made me delirious. I was telling my DH over and over to answer the #$% phone when there was no phone ringing.

    I finally agreed to an epidural and fell asleep for 3 hours. When I woke up I was ready to go. I should've done the epidural earlier.

    Good Luck and keep us posted !!! I'll be praying for you and your family.

    Go home and wait until baby is really ready to come.
    When labor is intense it will be time.
    You might want to have some labor support with you while coping at home~ do you have a doula?
