  • Mine started as low, almost hip pain. Kind of like I just needed to pop it. It quickly became a seeminly constant pain all over my low back with waves of intense pain. Nothing we tried helped except an epidural. There was no mistaking for me when it started.

  • My mom had back labor and said she just felt like it was cramps from a sore back...

  • Mine was excruciating pain that I could not get away from, and the anesthesiologist was unable to isolate the nerves with an epidural. This was my third delivery but the first time I had ever experienced back labor. I was literally in tears and writhing around. It did get better as the baby moved down more and I started pushing.
