  • One time it worked when My Daughter danced to a song by The Spice Girls! Another time she drank Ensure! Not sure if it really worked! Nothing worked for me until my Daughters were good & ready.....! Best of Luck!

  • Natural methods wont work unless your body has already begun the process.

  • I put when the child is ready b/c I don't believe in the other "induce labor" nonsense. Most of it hasn't been proved to work and/or hasn't been proven to be safe. Just my opinion! Good luck! Hope the baby comes soon!

  • I tried all of those with both babies... they just like to come at 41 weeks for me... sorry... I agree with the others.... when the baby and your body is ready... it will happen!!

  • Evening primrose oil is supposed to help. I think you listed just about all of them. I've heard swinging on a swing will...didn't work for me! lol I was pretty desperate for my last one to come so I was willing to try *just about* anything. What finally worked was having my sil &her friend visit for the weekend so we were up way too late every night. Then went to church Sunday, a bday party that afternoon, church again that night. Came home exhausted and labor started right at bedtime! =) I don't recommend going that route! lol

  • Well honestly sex and spicy food has always worked for me so that's the only thing I can personally suggest that actually works.
