    Default Natural therapies to engage and induce labour

    I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and wondered if anyone had any recommendations for alternative/natural therapies to encourage the baby to engage and also bring on labour (would not do this before 38 weeks)? I am keen not to go over my due date and get a feeling I will!

    I'm not a huge fan of osteo but thinking of chiro/acupuncture/etc.

    I am in inner Melbourne....

    TIA!

    Not any therapies as such but there's no harm in any of the following - a hot curry, long walks, bouncing on a fit/birth ball.... and DTD!! I know they're old wive's tales, but I did all of that in the days leading up to the birth of DS. Good luck!

    Thank you - will definitely be trying all these. Luckily I adore spicy food
