    Default Natural Induction methods.

    Hi, I'm just wanting to get a list of natural induction methods and when to start them.



    Disclaimer: I know babies choose when they are ready, but I'm probably going to be induced early so would really like to at least up my chances of a natural early labour first as I do not want to be induced.


    List so far:
    DTD
    Hot Curry
    Eating pineapple
    Bouncing on fit ball
    Walking
    Walking on uneven surfaces
    Star jumps and lunges
    Squats
    Evening primrose oil
    Clary sage oil
    Nipple stimulation
    Female orgasm
    Acupressure points (you'd have to google)
    Acupuncture
    Eating dates
    Pelvis massage
    Bouncing on a trampoline
    Clary sage oil, lavender, and ylang ylang mixed with almond oil as the carrier..

    Clary sage oil worked for me. Two days afterwards both times I bathed in it, rubbed it in my belly (both with lavendar oil) and burnt it.

    Great list thank you
    I tried everything with ds2. Nothing worked. I'm hoping this little one wants to come earlier though

    Here's something that worked for me this time around: DS (2) was jumping on his trampoline while I stood on it & lightly bounced up & down. We did this for half an hour. I had 5 hours of contractions that night, lost my mucous plug the next day & started leaking amniotic fluid. I had a hind water leak.
