BBL 147: How to Keep Labor MOVING!

A “stalled labor” is one of the biggest fears women have about natural birth. “Failure to progress,” as it’s called in the medical lingo, can bring on interventions or even lead to a cesarean section. Fortunately there are a number of techniques you can try to get labor moving - and they’re effective.
