Although every labour and birth experience is different, the usual common factor is a lengthy period of waiting around which is, to be frank, pretty boring.

Fill your labour bag with things to pass the time – books, celebrity gossip magazines, your iPod, or Sudoku books. Knowing who's wearing what will really take your mind off things.

When you tire of all those then having a handheld computer game within reach is ideal as they offer short bursts of distraction.
