  • You might go into labor soon or it could be several more weeks.

    Stripping of the membranes is not a guarentee. Many women have to have it done 3 or 4 times to see any results and many women never go into labor as a result of having the membranes stripped.

    For most women all it does is introduce bacteria and put the mother at risk for infection.

    Most women will go into labor within 48 hours of having it done IF (and that's a big IF) it's going to work.

    However for the majority of women who have it done nothing happens as a result of it.

    Good Luck!

  • If you want to go into labor try this:

    It's GUARENTEED to work!

    I ate this and delivered the next day. I thought it was a cawinkidink but I've made this for 3 friends and 2 family members since and ALL of them have gone into labor with 24 hours of eating this.

    It's crazy. I don't know what the hell it is that works  but it does work!
