    Default Can you drive home after having membranes stripped?

    I will be 40 + 2 at my appointment on Thursday and I think they are going to strip my membranes (god that sounds gross lol), silly question but can I drive home afterwards or should I get somebody to drive me?? Thanks

    You can drive. I was in a bit of pain after my last one though (I had 2) and I went into labour 22 hours later. First one didn't really feel like much nor do anything. If it makes you more comfortable have someone take you though. Good luck!

    I drove after each one (had them with both pregnancies). Just remember to wear a pad/liner in case you bleed a little.

    Yes I drove home. But I felt like crap, quite nauseous and crampy. Definitely allow yourself some time to rest first.
