Soooo, how do you stimulate your nipples to naturally induce your labor? adult content

I don't get it.
Do you just flick your nipple with your finger, use a breast pump, squeeze your boobs...LOL
Just what exactly are you supposed to do, how is it done?

  • Totally not safe. It can actually cause long lasting contractions that are really hard and can be stressful to baby. Some cases are so extreme that the contractions were too intense and lasted up to 4 minutes at a time.....scary. They aren't the same type of contractions that dialate the cervix half the time anyway.

  • Well, I had ob/peds class last semester and the textbooks said to use the inside of your palm, not your fingertips, just rup the inside of your cupped palm on your nipples and that's the best way to do it... lol. Seriously, that's what it said. ;) GL.

  • I used my breast pump and not only did I hurt my poor nipples, I did create some serious cramps. If your body is not ready to go into labor, I really think it is best to NOT mess with it. Let your body do what it was designed to do on it's own time schedule

  • It's really not a good idea. It only irritates your nipples. I did learn once that the same hormone that can be produced through nipple stimulation is also produced when your palate is stimulated. Supposedly sucking your thumb will do as much as rubbing your nipples.

  • rub, but doing this can caused contractions that are very long and painful. and may lead to a c-section.
