Well, sorry ladies, but you should probably expect to be in labour for a while! I sure was. Now I know i'm normal! 12-18+ hours is the average. Here is an interesting article about labour and c-sections.
At Aloe Massage Therapy, we are all trained to provide pregnancy (prenatal) massage. Jennifer Lie, has taken several post graduate courses in pre and post natal massage including:
1. Pregnancy Massage Part 1&2
2. The Complicated Pregnancy
3. Labour, Delivery, and Postpartum
4. Infant Massage
A great quick read for anyone who is pregnant, or planning to be pregnant.
