14Update Contacts In The Cell And On Facebook
Labor is unpredictable. Some women will experience prodromal labor where they contract for weeks on end before really progressing into active labor and getting the show on the road. Others will jump from a closed cervix to pushing in a matter of a few hours. It's best if every woman
is prepared for the latter.
Since you have no idea what to expect, you’ll need to be prepared to lean on your support partner . This means relying on them to get the word out to important family members ahead of time when you’ve gone into labor. Making a list of names with phone numbers to keep handy is the best way to go about this, and maybe even updating your Facebook contacts so they can send out messages for you on Facebook..
Then, your partner can make phone calls while you’re getting settled in at the birthing facility so you don’t need to worry about whether or not anyone called your favorite aunt or your grandmother.
