But if at all you are alone in the house and the labor starts, first of all when you are alone in the house always keep your cell phone with you so that you can contact the concerned person may it bee your neighbour, husband, relatives, etc. Prefer calling the person who can reach up to you faster. It is always a good idea to keep a hot water bag with you when you are alone and resting. Also, preferably be near to the main door and it is a good idea if the pregnant woman is alone at home there should be a bed in the drawing room, so that if she is in labor and calls anyone she should be able to easily open the door. If all these things are taken care about then it is really easy to get through this stage without panicking.
