  • it doesn't work. your nips will be extremely sore since all you have is colostrum. wait till the baby is born. itll just be easier that way. and sex is the best way to start labor..worked for me!

  • I have read that nipple stimulation Brings on the worse contractions. The book is What to expect when Expecting.

  • Those methods work if the woman happens to be on the cusp of going on her own anyway. Besdies, if you pump you'll waste colostrom.
