  • Walk and maybe have sex. Those are the ONLY two safe ways to MAYBE help it along.

  • Nipple stimulation and sex, walking, Some people swear by spicy food.

  • Your LABOR will start when your body is ready. You only have a few days left. Be patient and let it happen by itself. Trying to induce is usually not safe.

  • Nope, it's baby sitting on your cervix helping move it along. Just sit back and relax. You'll need it for when baby comes.

  • you can walk alot .... have someone massage your heels akehelies tendent or how ever you spell that and the best one of all have sex if you can stand it.... plus it might be the last time for awhile anyways and it will make your partner happy but it does help labor along

  • Why do you want to push things? (You heard the information about your cervix?)

    * Remember that labor WILL start with baby & body are ready.
    Before that is forceful, not so respectful of Mother Nature / God / the baby...

    Who doesn't want to encourage baby out because they feel done?! lol
    But Motherhood is constantly a test of patience, starting even before baby comes out~~

    Good luck and welcome to the club!
