    Pregnant women sharing useful hints online often advise each other to bring a comb to the hospital to help them during labor. And they never mean combing their hair.

    Labor combs

    The woman has years of experience of helping future mothers and supporting them during labor. They advise them to take a comb with them to the labor room.
