My daughter is almost in labour

She's had contractions stop and start for past week and a half..she is 3cm dilated, 50% effaced, has lost her mucous plug..yesterday...had a bunch of contractions but nothing seems to stick and get active.

She's very frustrated..wants suggestions.

Ones that she can't do...sex...hubby has a yeast infection...other than that she's open to just about anything. She's walking a lot.

She has no access to herbs right now.

She wondered about swimming and epo what with mucus plug gone.

Any ideas are welcome...whether they work or not I think she wants to DO something kwim.

I'm very excited btw!

I bet your excited! Grandkids, it's all the fun with none of the work!

I think (logically) it's probably okay to swim, but I don't think I'd want to go in public pool with no mucus plug either (yuck factor.)

How about some spicy food?
