we did in labor with my little one! i was contracting every 3 mins or so...he says it was really weird
it didnt help or hurt anything, if id Od bigger, i think it may have helped some, at least making something stronger, but i mainly felt my cervix dialating rather than contracting like most people do, anyway...
ive almost never not
been interested, i seriously would within hours of birth, if i had someone around the first time (we were in different states) or if there wasnt a risk of infection, dang it
but especially me thinking it would help me out, with the semen and all, and being the last time for a couple weeks for sure, i sure wasnt turning him down
and since i was induced at almost 43 weeks the first time, i tried to lots towards the end to give my uterus the idea hehe.
when i get towards the pushing, i want quiet and darkness, but i wouldnt have minded him or my son being there (my 2yo ran off right before i pushed out the baby to play with my brother
though thats not something id have been interested in at that point because i go into my little focus on the labor and try to get rid of anything bothering me place, but any other time isnt off limits
