  • When close to your due date or over with the fear of not going into labor naturally without artificial help, sexual intercourse with deep penetration is one way of obtaining a natural approach to inducing labor. Be it may you have a mountainous belly in front of you and feel a little less sexy set the mood in a way that will get you and your partner turned on. Refrain from KY jellies and other oils unless you check with your doctor first. Sex will be a little uncomfortable and if it becomes unbearable stop so that you won't further the risk of an unfortunate event. Before you do use the sex approach ask you doctor to see what he/she says. You're doctors opinion is essential when it comes to inducing labor yourself!

  • no you don't have to wait but you should let nature take it's course the baby will come when he or she is ready! and take my advice you'll want to wait...........this might be the last chance for the next 18 years you will be able to bath, eat, shit, shop, play all before YOU HAVE A CRYING, RUNNING, SCREAMING, POOPING, FEED ME BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    but if you try sex that helps
    try castor oil
    try mexican foods

  • Wow. You cannot induce yourself naturally. The baby will come when it wants to. And taking castor oil and mexican foods will just make you have diarrhea and be uncomfortable. Why would ANYONE do that?

  • SEX
    WALKING
    POWER WALKING WOULD WORK BETTER
    SQUATING
    NIPPLE STIMULATION
    THESE ARE THING THAT CAN HELP YOU GET THERE. SOME WOMEN HATE FOR ANYONE TO TRY AND GET THINGS ROLLING BUT HUNY ITS UR BABY, YOU DO WHATEVER YOU WANT AND I HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!!

  • eSnA2008 (comment above) already gave some awesome suggestions!

    You definitely want to let nature take it's course. But there are some things you can do to get your body and baby ready. Walking helps, because gravity will cause baby to put pressure on your cervix. This tells your body that baby is ready to come and starts labor. Plus, it's really good for you.

    Prenatal yoga, especially squatting, really helps and it feels good. Also, cat stretch will help you throughout pregnancy and really good to help release back labor.

    I also did some gentle jumping (I was almost 2 weeks overdue, mind you!) -- it was more like vigorous bobbing!!

    If you're past your due date and/or being threatened with medical induction, try acupressure:

    Good luck!
