Nothing you do will work until your body is ready. Some people swear by squats but it really doesn't do any thing. A sweating position can help bring baby down after labor has started, but not before. It also isn't the action of doing repeated squats but holding the position. That's why many people sit on a yoga or birthing ball. People thing bouncing on it helps, but again, it's not the action but the position.
Honestly, you need your body to produce oxytocin to get labor going. The best way to do that is relaxing. Trying everything in the book will only frustrate you. Relaxing, feeling loved and having fun produce oxytocin.
So it's pretty much just squatting and holding the position that helps?
When you are already in labor and trying to progress.
Iv been in early labor from what my midwife has told me.
You can try. Just don't get frustrated or wear your self out. The best way to progress your labor is to encourage your body to produce oxytocin. You do that by relaxing, having sex, feeling loved and having fun.
