    Put 5 Evening Prime Rose Oil capsules on your cervix tonight. If you can have your husband put them it that will be easier. My DH put them in for me after my midwife recommended them. Do it RIGHT before bed. That will ripen your cervix. When you wake up go for a walk for at least an hour. Then put 2 more capsules in and take a nap. Make the eggplant parmesean for dinner if you aren't already in labor and eat a large portion. Then if you still aren't in labor place 5 more capsules on your cervix before bed.

    This is what my midwife told me to do. I was in labor by the first night but she said it can take a couple of days.

    Of course none of this will work if your body isn't ready.

    My midwife wanted to naturally induce me because of some blood pressure issues that came up. It worked!!

  • i'd just try visualization. relax and visualize a flower opening, stuff like that. i'm sure you could google up some good ideas. i don't think anything else would help, and at least that couldn't hurt
