Anyone tried nipple stimulation to bring on labor?

Have any of you tried nipple stimulation with a breastpump or hand pumping?

How many weeks were you?

Was your cervix ripe?

Was it sucessful?

How may times did you try? Were they in a row?

What regimen did you use?

My doctor recommended us trying nipple stimulation to bring on labor. I showed her a nipple stimulation regimen that I found on line that's supposed to help prevent uterine hyper stimulation and she agreed that was the best way to go. It's like 2 minutes on, 2 minutes off, 2 minutes on and then a 20 minute break. She said having sex during that time could really help.

Anyway have you tried it...if you can you answer the questions above for me? THANKS!

  • Have any of you tried nipple stimulation with a breastpump or hand pumping? i tried hand stimulation.

    How many weeks were you? i was 40 weeks

    Was your cervix ripe? yes

    Was it sucessful? yes i went into labor 1 day later

    How may times did you try? Were they in a row? too many to count, some were in a row others were not, i tried to do it constantly for at least 20 minutes and then stop for 10-20 and then again for 20.

    I'm not positive that is what put me into labor but i did it a lot and started labor the next morning after doing it all day the previous day. Good luck.
