Episode 114 Content and Overview
When you have made it through most of your pregnancy and are in the final stretch you enter the waiting game of waiting to go into labor. This can be nerve racking for two reasons. First you do not know when you are going to go into labor, and second you do not know how to tell that you truly have started labor and it isn’t just a false alarm. This episode explains the signs that labor is going to start soon and the signs that you are in labor. You are not going to experience all of these signs, and some of these signs may happen to you but go unnoticed. After listening to this episode you will have a better idea of what to look out for to know when labor is starting, and when to call your doctor or midwife.
