“Hormones run our bodyworks behind the scenes and most of the time, we don’t notice them at all until one goes off kilter or becomes dominant. Then we can’t help but pay attention.
“That’s probably what’s happening when pregnant women get the “labor shakes,” described as uncontrollable shivering, trembling or teeth-chattering. Desiree Bley, MD, OB-GYN at Providence Hospital in Portland OR, says, ‘Labor shakes are related to hormone shifts, adrenaline response and temperature. We’re all different so some women get them and some don’t.'”
