bring on labour?

Can you ask for a stretch and sweep? I had one and my waters broke that same night.
Also try burning Clary Sage oil- you can find it in health shops; the nurses even had it going in an oil burner in my hospital room after I was induced and waiting for labour/contractions to start.
ETA: don't burn the Clary Sage until closer to your due date..

My OBGYN said that doing natural things to bring on labour usually only work if your already on your way there, sorry. Having said that, sex helped with DS2 And it was fun.

I'm interested to know this too but everything I've tried hasn't worked.. However, it's been a great distraction .

Clary sage oil has worked for a few of my friends but they didn't start using it until 38 weeks

After having both DD's induced i tried everything to naturally help DS along but none of it worked and he to was induced.
Clary sage oil rubbed on belly and bathed in.
Evening primrose oil
Raspberry leaf tablets

Tried everything under the sun, when I was 11 days over I went for a walk, bounced on the trampoline and had sex, went into labour that night, but I'd still at a it was all coincidental he had to come out at some point lol I also laboured for 52 hours so I don't know if it was a god idea to do all that stuff.

DS came on his due date and the night before I did this:
Bounced on a fit ball
I was also taking raspberry leaf tablets and tea from around 35/35 weeks.
On the day DS was born we DTD.
I have also heard nipple stimulation helps, so perhaps expressing?
There are also pressure points on your feet, under your ankle bone on the inside of your feet that you can massage.
Otherwise sometimes acupuncture helps

if you don't want an induction, just don't agree to having one. Your baby and body might just need a little longer than others.
