    Default Natural Induction Methods

    I am 38 weeks and completely over it!!!!!!!!! Sick of being in pain, over being uncomfortable and my asthma is getting worse with the weather getting colder and there's not much I can take for it, so i'd love to be able to breathe properly again!!

    I've read heaps of information about natural induction methods, but I was wondering which ones have worked you ladies??...

    No such thing as natural induction, you risk a baby who is going to be premature and at 38 weeks possibly 4 weeks too early for them which can pose a range of risks, including breathing issues.

    Have you looked into ways to make yourself more comfortable? Chiro helped me heaps when I went to 42+5 with DD. Have you spoken to your care provider about your concerns in regards to your asthma?

    I like to think that 'natural induction' methods only really work if you are actual ready

    So lots of walking, nipple stimulation, clary sage, s-ex, org@sms, climbing stairs, relaxation, visualisation etc. I see no harm in giving them all a go

    I know everyone says baby will come when ready (not even close yet!) but I'm not allowed to go overdue or be induced if I want my VBAC so definitely looking into natural options and wanting to research it early.

    I'm trying acupuncture, my friend swears by it and has had it for induction for 2 of her children now- in sating that if baby isn't ready it can take two weeks of weekly sessions to work. I'm having it done for my hips and babies position at the moment, suffering from chronic pain from nerve issues it has helped a little and will try the induction at 38 week in 10 days.
