|Hi. My daughter has just given birth. Whilst trying to explain events to my neighbours I realised my vocabulary was sadly lacking on the pregnancy front. Could anyone please give me translation for the following:- Her waters broke early in the morning. She was in labour for several hours. Do the French have a phrase for 'being in labour'?|
I would say " Je suis grand mère ! Ma fille a accouché, tout s'est bien passé , elle a perdu les eaux de bonne heure le matin, elle a été en travail pendant plusieurs heures, "
" being in labour " = etre en travail .
