  • Have lots of good sex. Semen has prostaglandins in it that are very effective at ripening the cervix and your orgasm will help jumpstart contractions.

    Also, for moms having their second or subsequent baby, usually you dilate first and efface second.

    For now have tons of sex.

  • Yep, what the other moms said. Sex: sperm helps.

  • Evening primrose oil also contains prostaglandins and will help your cervix soften.

  • It's Mother Nature's/God's way of teaching us Motherhood even before delivering.
    We will need to be patience and ride the waves.
    Baby is still inside for an important reason~ not ready yet.

    Trying to force things could help, not usually, but they can add risk. They tend to work when labor is already starting to begin, anyway (ironic!). So if a mom is already on her way she doesn't *need* help. lol!

  • Evening primrose oil is also a blood thinner so you have to be careful with it
