  • When I was in my 81/2 to 9 month, I kept having false labor. The nurses told me and my DH to go get some wine and have lots of sex. So thats what we did! The wine was to keep me relaxed. I only drank about two glasses total over three days and had sex, well, lots of it till our daughter was born. It worked.....

  • The tea you are thinking of is Red Raspberry Leaf tea, I made it as an ice tea. It won't make you go into labor but it strengthens your contractions and is considered safe by most doctors. There are also pressure points you can use that cause contractions. And castor oil is considered safe by a lot of doctors and midwives. If you are considering it keep in mind it can cause dehydration and make sure you are at least 39 weeks ( u/s due dates can be off by as much as two weeks). False Labor can be really discouraging, so make sure you are ready for the possibility that it won't work. Good Luck, hope you meet the baby soon!

  • Please do not try any of these remedies unless you talk to your Doctor,I knew a lady who decided to jump off her porch to induce labor well she jumped about 7 times and nothing,lucky she did not harm herself.No product or chemical will induce labor except those issued by a doctor.Please do not do any old wives tale stuff.Sex is ok but call the doc.Good luck.
