When your body goes into labor, there's quite a few stages to get through before it's time for your baby to officially arrive.
This early labor can last up to 12 hours, especially if this is your first baby.
A lot of "Netflixing" can happen in 12 hours, so we made you a go-to playlist for Netflix to get you through the discomfort of the early labor stage.
It might seem impossible to think about relaxing at a time like this, but you should actually spend this labor phase relaxing instead of anxiously recording each contraction.
So sit back, get comfortable and enjoy the show!
