  • I'm not sure how to do it, but everyone I know that HAS done it said labor hurt worse than they could ever imagine, and they'd already had kids before that. It supposedly makes the contractions MUCH more intense and painful.

  • As strange as it just do whatever you normally do to stimulate them...probably the best thing would be to let your SO have at breast pump needed....

    It can REALLY cause you to have serious contractions, I know from personal experience.

  • Well it releases oxytocin, which is what docs use IN pitocin for induction of labor. But if your body isn't ready for labor, nothing will work, trust me on that one lol

  • Nipple stimulation is similar to that action of a baby nursing. Your partner can help. Just don't stress if it doesn't work, it is something that will only work if your baby is ready. GL

  • Use a pump or have you so play with them. However, it won't work unless your baby is ready to be born. Sure, you'll get a couple contractions but they'll just stall out after a while. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and still nursing my son. So my nipples are stimulated several times a day, everyday and no labor since my body isn't ready. That's just how it works. With my last pregnancy I used a pump and it didn't work then either. Try it if you'd like.

  • have fun go crazy...It doesn't make your contractions any It just releases the same hormone that gets released normally. People just take more notice of it when it is something they did. Lol. Just do whatever makes you feel stimulated. Lol.
