I had horrible back labor and the biggest reliever for me was to have someone putting extreme pressure on my secrum area. My doula and DF were constantly switching out on who was applying pressure cause I'm sure their hands were cramping up but it worked. Also swaying on an exercise ball and the shower were great. The tub helped my back labor some but I really feel like I got more relief out of the shower cause I could use the head to put direct flow onto where I wanted it.

Also, I will be trying Hypnobabies for my next birth. I wish I would have known about it before hand. Someone had mentioned it to me at my birth center as a class I could take and I think I snorted and said, "that sounds too hippy for me." Yea, little did I know lol.
