Quoting Katey Saewert:" I am 37 weeks 5 days and every night i go for a half hour walk not to induce labor just to help my body ... [snip!] ... do go into labor. My question is does it actually help? What are the benefits of walking late in pregnancy to help with labor?"I don't know much about how much it helps kick start labor, however I took a 1/2 mile walk every day while I was pregnant with LO and it seemed to help labor be a little easier, and it also helped keep my hips from stiffening up and causing me lots of pain.
