Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Just stay calm, take deep breaths and do what you can to relax. Watch a movie, go for a walk, anything that will get your mind off of the contractions. If you took any birthing classes you should use techniques you learned to help you cope.
I didn't get the epidural while I was having my son it was terrible and I was having back labor, holding a pillow and gentley bouncing helped alot.
