  • I heard that raspberry leaf tea works, but I tried it and it didn't work! I was still 5 days late!!! Had a lot of fun trying sex too, but it didn't work haha.

  • When my sis in law started going into labor she kept taking warm baths and walking. She stayed at 2 cm for 3 days. Well I had her some over and help do laundry. I had her squat down and rab one thing out of the dryer at a time. 4 hours later my nephew was born. Good thing we lived 3 min from the hospital... lol

  • I too have heard sex, walking, and castor oil. Never tried any of them though my 1st one was induced and the 2nd one was a c-section. My step sister did try all three that I mentioned and none of them worked.

  • I've only heard of walking, castor oil, and sex. I'm not going to because I want by baby to come when he's ready :)
