  • IF the baby is ready then you'll go into labor. Dont rush it no matter how anxious you are.

  • Baby will come when he's ready.

    You can place EPO capsels on your cervix to help encourage the ripening of the cervix but it won't make you go into labor. Just ripen the cervix to get you there faster. Sex really is the best way of ripening the cervix.

    You can also try Scalini's Labor Inducing Eggplant Parmesean. You can find the recipe on line just google.

    Don't try anything that isnt' 100% safe and natural. Natural things don't work unless you are close to going into labor on your own anyway.

    And remember your NOT REALLY over due until your 42 weeks!
