  • I just answered another ladies Question about this and posted the list the my doula, who works closely with a midwfie, gave me. The midwife uses these things when her clients are at risk for medical induction or when it's safer for mom to deliver vs staying pregnant.

    Here's the link to the post:

  • I've tried everything. Acupuncture, acupressure, sex, walking, bouncing, swinging, sex, evening primrose oil, spicy foods, chinese food...whatever, nothing has worked yet. I'm 41 weeks tomorrow. ahhh...i'm getting so anxious and extremely uncomfortable...but, i'm waiting patiently, there's still so much i don't have ready, especially a name!!!

    baby will tell your body when it's time...i just wonder when it's time for me because i want to try a natural VBAC before i hit 42 weeks.
