Are you more likely to go into Labour overnight?
You are more likely to go into labor at night. Whatever the true evolutionary reason, our modern bodies continue to maintain a nocturnal birth rhythm. Contractions tend to peak in intensity between 8:30 p.m. and 2:00 a.m., and labor itself most often begins between midnight and 5:00 a.m.
Can you sleep through labor?
If it’s day, ignore! Our general rule is to sleep as long as possible if you’re starting to feel contractions at night. Most of the time you can lay down and rest during early labor. If you wake up in the middle of the night and notice contractions, get up and use the bathroom, drink some water, and GO BACK TO BED.
