Nipple stimulation to get labor started?

Has anyone done this and it actually worked? How long did you do it for and when did contractions start? I'm 39 weeks pregnant

  • my dh started the nipple stimulation. that lead to sex, started having contractions, then i went to the gym and ran for about an hour, then went shopping, then went home and cleaned my whole house and did squats and lunges. i kept moving for hours and i ended up giving birth that day. i was exactly 39 weeks

  • doesn't work. nothing really does. if you go into labor after something i think it was coincidence. but u can try!

  • I never tried but a girl i knew did and she said it didnt work. She went two more weeks (42 weeks) and then finally had him.
