Obstetrical Care Tips
If you think you're in labor, you should monitor:
Time and frequency of your contractions from the onset of one contraction to the onset of the next
Duration of a contraction refers to how long it lasts (it usually lasts 25-60 seconds)
In "true labor," contractions will get progressively stronger, longer, and closer together. In "false labor" contractions, you can subside with things such as lying down on your left side, taking a warm bath, walking around, or drinking water.
