  • Oh for crying out loud!

    This is something you DO NOT want to attempt to do!

  • If you call at all about your baby's health, you will not attempt that. If you want to try to start the labor process simply walk.

  • You do not want to do this, the baby will come out when it is ready and if you break that sack too soon, will trigger a bunch of events none of which are good..........

  • You don't. At least not without potentially harming your baby or causing yourself to become sterile. infection, surgery, possible death. Are you prepared to deal with that? JUST DON'T TRY. Childbirth is not something you get to be in control of.

  • How do you hurt your self and your baby? By breaking your own water. Go to the hospital. Sometimes I wander about people sometimes!

  • The rul of thumb is that once the water breaks, you have tenty-four hours todeliver before your chance of infection gets dangerously high. So there can be no good that comes from breaking the water at home when you have no idea what's going on in your uterus, and no way to know the medical implications of your actions. Walking is a harmless, albeit unpredictable, way to get labor started. Otherwise kick back, play some cards or watch some old "I Love Lucy" reruns, and wait for nature to take its course.
