Is this like a common thing now adays? What exactly do they do when they "strip" your membranes? Just curious because I keep hearing this from people and i'm kind of clueless. I've always had a doctor with a "it will happen when it happens attitude". Which is pretty much the way it should be in my opinion.

I had to have it done & I found it uncomfortable. As I understood it, the doctor forces his/her finger into your cervix to manually thin the membrane and semi-force dilation. It started my contractions but I still had to have pitocin (sp?) to induce. I had preeclampsia though - it wasn't the doctor just wanting to move things along.
