Prodromal labor is sometimes referred to as false labor, but this is somewhat of a misnomer because prodromal labor is the period leading up to the first part of labor. Discover how prodromal labor can be mentally and physically exhausting with help from a certified nurse-midwife in this free video on prodromal labor.

@ ramona Blaaz yes… I think some of the things she said were wrong. But
prodromal and false labor seem to get a lot on confusion. And I think
there should be more of a distinction between the 2. I have prodromal labor
and my contractions are regular and have been increasing in intensity. This
has gone on for days. And yet little to no changes in dilation. Prodromal
labor is really a very slow early labor. Nothing false about it.

I was diagnosed with prodromal labor that lasted a week, but this nurse on
the video says contractions are not painful in prodromal labor. Mine were
very painful just like real labor. Is she wrong?

Love your video! Yes! New moms need a lot of help. Good to hear
breastfeeding takes 2 weeks to establish.
