  • Nipple stimulation can cause fast and painful contractions if you arent careful. My midwife stripped my membranes, I went into labor 2 days later.

  • Evening primrose oil, sex, castor oil, nipple stimulation, walking, deep lunges...you can try a number of things, but untill baby is ready nothing is going to make you go into labor, just alot of it will help boost it along once you are established.

  • all those things can put you in to labor...IF your body is ready...but ALWAYS talk to your doctor before trying to induce labor bc some methods such as castor oil and such are not recommended.
