  • I never tried that but i did try nipple stimulation. i had my daughter 2 days later. So it might help. i always took a warm or semi hot bath or shower and did it while in there. I thought it worked well. Good luck and congrats!

  • EPO will only aid in softening your cervix, it wont help you dilate or even jump starting labor. Sex and Walking are the only things that may work, but only if your body is ready.

    You can have a VBAC if you really want it. Reschedule your c/s, they can't force you to have a c/s.
