Has anyone had this done in labor?
Sterile Water Injections
With DD I had horrible back labor, and I'm afraid this one is going to be the same. He lays the same way as DD did, and I can always see him kicking out front. Once I start early labor, I'm going to try everything I can to get him to face my spine, but my hopes aren't too high. My MW suggested sterile water injections. Has anyone had this done? How well does it work? I'd love to hear your experiences with it!

My birth center offered it, but I never used them. I am assuming the pressure of the water injected into the lower back relieves some of the pain?

My Midwife said it's an option that may help with the back pain. I have three herniated discs, so even if I don't have back labor, the chance of having horrible back pain is pretty likely.

my friend got them at the BC she was at for her back labor. They helped, but they do hurt being given and wear off eventually. I had back labor awful with Cadie, and I requested them, but the nurse never heard of it. She "asked" and they said yes I could have them but they didn't follow through.

I asked my midwife about this when I was pregnant with Vivian (homebirth) and she said it's not something everyone knows how to do. I would ask ahead of time and find out exactly what the deal is where you will be having baby and what you can expect. You don't want to think something can happen to find out it can't.

I didn't end up with bad back labor the second time, only at the end, like the last hour. I expected I would because of my back issues (fibromyalgia) and previous experience, but it didn't happen. Every labor really is different. I think it's fantastic to think about these things ahead of time though.

My MW said it's something she knows how to do, so I'm definitely considering it as an option for pain relief. What I've found about it says that it causes an intense stinging sensation when done (30-90 seconds) and brings relief within a few minutes. It wears off after 1-3 hours, but can be done as often as needed. There's no negative side effects since it's not any type of medication. I think my MW is the only one at the hospital who knows how to do it, so I'd have to wait until she's available, a nurse wouldn't be able to.
