It means to induce or make the labor begin. Labor here refers to a woman having a baby.

instead of: 'Labor here refers to a woman having a baby', I would say: 'Labor here refers to a woman getting pregnant/in the state of getting pregnant',because 'having a baby' may mean 'having baby in general, but not in your body' or 'having a baby with you', ok?
thanks

A woman (in the state of) getting pregnant would be having sexual intercourse!

Labour' refers to a woman going through childbirth - commonly referred to as 'having a baby'.
