  • jademom... stripping membranes is NOT an induction! It just helps your body better prepare for labor and helps give it a little push! If your body is not ready, stripping your membranes wont do a damn thing!

    I am all for stripping of the membranes. I wouldnt recommend it til you are at least 2cm becuase it REALLY hurts if the OB has to force his/her finger into your cervix. So I would wait til they tell you how dilated you are

  • I agree with Jaydin Makenna. Definitely dont do it unless your dialated some. it hurts like a biznitch!! lol but it is totally worth it. I had my membranes stripped and immediately started contracting, and I went into labor immediately after that!! deifnitley worth the uncomfortable feeling.
