Interesting, I wonder if this only applies to hospital births and possibly with all their interventions. I remember reading something that says most natural births take place in the night because it was a survival thing for primates. I had a hospital birth and he was born in the afternoon, and my homebirth baby was born in the middle of the night. Labor would slow down in the day, but pick up at night.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the training of the staff. Perhaps more experienced staff are more able to choose their shift and more likely to choose hours between 8-6.
I went in in the morning to be monitored b/c I had pre eclamcia. It turned out what I thought was back pain from bed rest was back labor. It picked up, but DD's heart rate kept dropping resulting in an emergency csection at 10pm.
I noticed the opposite from what I suggested though. Our night nurse was amazing. I really have no clue what I would have done without her.
