False labor is such a frustrating term! How can labor be false? Your contractions are real, the twinges and pains are real! So what is happening when our body experiences this “false” labor?
We live in a world where the increasing norm is that we don't live near family. Long passed are the days when our neighbors are our family. Life, jobs, military assignments and school take our families to every corner of the world! That doesn't stop us from having more children (thank goodness!) but it does make things a little harder.
