  • I don't recommend it.

  • Usually they will do it after week 38. Be careful though. My care provider did it to me without my consent and it caused my water to break prematurely and my labor didn't start for 2 days. It can also cause infection and isn't really that effective.

  • I dont recommend it either. I have seen friends do it and its painful and broker thier water as well when thier bodies werent ready for labor.

  • i had it done at 37 weeks and I was fine. It was uncomfortable but didnt hurt. My water never broke prematurley but I did lose my mucus plug as soon as I got home. I went into labor naturally a week later

  • the is dangerous anyways and shouldnt be done. it can cause rupture of membranes, infections, and wont even help you go into labor if your body and baby isnt ready yet!!
    Just relax and wait for your baby to be ready for birth, you wont be pregnant forever.

  • What is this? I think my dr did this to me twice, but not sure what it is. He didn't tell me what he was doing and didn't ask, he just did it....
