If an animal like a dog or a horse is stressed while laboring, her body will actually stop labor until she can get to a "safe" location. I think it's a survival method. Back in the day, stress meant DANGER, and why would our bodies give birth in a dangerous situation. So yes, I think stress can slow down, or even put a halt to labor
