  • No tricks. It has to happen slowly. Just be patient. Pretty soon the baby will be here and it will all be worth it

  • If you investigate this, technically, nothing *WILL* do it. But some things can help encourage labor, ...possibly.

    Unfortunately, the body needs to be teetering on the brink of labor already for the "home remedies" to help. (Otherwise every time a pregnant woman walked she'd put herself into labor. Or had sex, or ate pineapple, or spicy foods, etc.etc.)

    So really it comes down to this irony: All these "tricks" help when you're going into labor ANYWAYS... so why even bother?? ;- /

    BUT there is something else to consider:
    The baby is inside still because baby & body aren't ready yet for delivery (regardless of using fancy words like "term.")
    That there are risks with some remedies that must be factored in for safety.
    And that attempts that (usually) fail will wear down a mama's spirit. Needlessly. No reason to disappoint yourself, stay strong! Keep up you faith in the process that WILL work in time.
