  • Get some rest, starting labor when you are exhausted could be disastrous! You will see baby soon! I know it feels like forever, but just hang in there!!

  • Well nothing will help unless your baby and body are ready but some things you can do to encourage baby to come on out are:

    -Drink Raspberry Leaf tea (tones the uterus and causes small contractions that if your body is ready can get things going. If not it helps to ready your uterus for labor)

    -Drink Cumin Tea (1 cumin leaf with 1 cup boiling water left to steep for 5 minutes. Add a cube of raw potatoe and some honey or sugar to sweeten! 1 CUP PER HOUR PER DAY)

    ***The above is used my midwives in Latino cultures to induce labor when a mom is over due or indanger of medical induction. It is usually very effective.

    -Acuputure- You can find the pressure points for inducing labor online.

    - A warm bath to relax your body. If your tired you need rest and less stress in order for your body to feel prepared for labor. Being stressed out over being tired can actually KEEP you from going into labor.

  • de (it can help get baby into the right position for labor and apply pressure to your cervix)

    -Squatting for short periods of time (can apply pressure to the cervix to encourage dialation)

    Do NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT use ANY type of Cohosh or Castor Oil. Both are VERY dangerous and can cause serious problems for mom and baby.

  • Have sex and wait 30 minutes after sex before getting up. There are hormones in the seamen that help to soften the cervix.

    The drug Cervidil that they use in hospitals is derived from Pig Sperm because it has the same hormones in it as Human Sperm. Just FYI...so you know it's not some old wives tale. It really something that helps.
