    Default A curious labour question?

    Between labour contractions, does baby become very still or do they go ape....? I was wondering because i would probably go ape... If everything around me start behaving like it wants to squeeeze me to death.

    Do you know all I can remember is the baby's heartbeat was fine. They monitor it.

    I have no idea either! I was too focused on just getting through the next contraction. I wasn't on any monitoring either so have no idea what bubs was up to!

    I can't remember during first stage labour, but during second stage labour DS was kicking my left rib between pushes and it hurt to the point that I would have to hold my rib. He was posterior so not sure if that made a difference.

    My understanding is they kind of try and help get out. I learnt at some antenatal class that during transition they are kind of nudging with their heads and making little kicking pushes with their feet. They must move around though because they can change position at the last minute.

    Babies aren't passive during birth, it's a bit like a dance but no they aren't doing the Macarena more like a slow dance
