My midwife only does them in active labor and still only if I ask. I don't have to have a single check the entire pregnancy or labor.
I did have her check earlier on when I was having painful contractions around 22 weeks, but that's the only time it was done. I don't plan on having her check while in labor unless something "feels off" or it's really drawn out.
It doesn't really tell you much since women walk around dilated for weeks and months without labor beginning.
