Natural ways to induce labor??

Postby Hopefulmommy » Mon Oct 19, 2015 1:53 pm

I'm currently 40 weeks today with no dilation/effacement. My doctor booked me for an induction a week from now and I really do not want to be induced. I've been walking every night and am going to start eating spicy food every night for dinner. Besides sex, are there any other ways that worked for anyone that they believed help them go into labor?

Raspberry leaf tea, evening primrose oil? I don't know if it's too late for them to work though.

Hi, just wanted to offer what I think worked for me. Both times I went into full blown labor I had just had a pedicure. They say that there are pressure points in your feet that can help with moving things along. Not sure if it 100% accurate but like I said the two times I had one I went into labor within 6-12 hours. Even if it doesn't help with going into labor it sure does feel good. :-) Prayers that things pick up for you very soon and lots of kisses from you lil one. God bless!!
