  • I believe stripping your membranes is what a lot of doctors choose to do to help induce labor anyhow. If they're not opting for pitocin or a prostaglandin cream or any other method, they probably have their reasons. But why ask us? Call your doctor and talk it over with them, since it doesn't matter what WE think - it matters what your doctor thinks and knows.
