Has anyone used these and are they safe?

I am 36, expecting my 2nd child....10 years after my first!! My first birth experience was in a military hospital and I wont say anything else, for fear of scaring you to death!

THIS TIME I have a wonderful, super supportive husband, a midwife and I feel more prepared. But I had 2 days of labor with my first....and 14 of those hours were spent on my back in the hospital....so in order not to have a repeat of that...or anything REMOTELY like it, Im trying to explore all my options.

I'm trying to make the same decision (whether to take Polly Jeans or not). Here's something I just found which makes me more inclined not to take them.


I had a long labor with my first, too. But my midwife doesn't think that means anything for my second. If you were in a hospital and on your back, no wonder you had a long labor! Also, your body knows better what to do now.
