Im a first time mom, can bouncing on a yoga ball at 38.5 weeks pregnant help bring on labor if baby hasn't dropped much?
It does not always: Take a long time, I have had pts push the 1st baby out in 5-15 minutes while other women took 2 hours, once u have had a vag del if the 2nd baby is not any bigger it usually takes less time because the vaginal canal has been stretched out from the 1st delivery, but sometimes the baby can get stuck so your health care prof should be skilled enough to know that and when to do a section if necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
