You may have heard the term back labor at some point during your pregnancy. Back labor can happen for any number of reasons, for example:
  • If your baby is in a posterior position - which means the back of his head is pressing into your sacrum.
  • If your baby was previously in a posterior position but turned you may still have back labor because you've already had pressure on the area.
  • You have a bad back and during your pregnancy the pressure of the pregnancy is too much.
What back labor feels like: Back labor causes pain; from bad to intense in your back. Usually, during a normal labor (non-back) a mama gets a little break from pain between contractions, but back labor not only makes normal contractions worse but the pain won't leave between contractions so there's no break from the pain. Obviously this makes labor just that much harder. To learn more about back labor read:  Coming up; how to deal with back labor.
