  • I've heard Raspberry Leaf Tea helps induce labor.

  • You can always try nipple stimulation, or walking. Like not hard core walking "Um, I was just getting up to go to the restroom doc!" Any sort of light exercise could help, like folding laundry...

  • Why don't they induce you if your blood pressure is so high? Are you making any progress down there yet? Are you dilated or effaced any? Castor Oil can help if you want to drink it. I did with my daughter. Have the stripped your membranes yet to avoid going over your due date? Nature will let you know when your ready no matter what. Does your birth mother have to leave after 3 days or can she take more time off? Could she come at another time?

  • im 2 cm dilated and 80% effaced..they wont strip my membranes until im fully thinned out..

    She wants to come down to for my birthday and we been planning this ever since i told her i was pregnant..and she has to be back for the 27th. =[

    i tried castor oil...did NOTHING for me...at all..i didnt even poop...
