In brief: See below
"back labor" refers to the pain and discomfort that laboring women experience in their lower back.
Although most women will feel a degree of achiness or slight cramping in the back at some point during labor, about a quarter of all women report experiencing severe discomfort in the lower back that is most intense during contractions and often painful between contractions.
