coughing could only bring on labour if your body was ready to labour at the end, such as your waters being ready to go etc, it wil not make a difference to your cervix or anything, and it wont make you labour honestly, people talk such crap sometimes dont believe everythig you hear hunny xxx

why would they tell you that? i asked the midwife a good few weeks back about coughing badly and can it do any harm and she told me not at all.

I really don't think you have anything to worry about! I got asthma and suffer with bronchitis quite often and I didn't even go into labour with my DD at all. Had to be induced when I was 14 days overdue and I was coughing loads for months! The only thing I found was that it hurts with a big bump!

Agree with the above. And what a lovely thing to say to someone

When I had flu a couple of months ago it brought on my Asthma and I was coughing really hard for days, I could feel my (very little at the time) bump sucking in each time I coughed it was awful. When the doc called to check up on me I asked her about it and she said that coughing can do no harm to the baby at all and it certainly doesn't bring on labour unless you're ready.
