What was your luck with getting your Membranes Stripped?

  • Did not work for me either, and then I ended up with an infection so for me personally, it wasn't worth it.

  • I am a doula. I don't know anyone whom this has actually worked for, and I know several people who've gotten infections.

  • I had it done with my first and it worked within 24 hours. That is interesting that you don't know anyone that it worked for....cause I don't know anyone that it Didn't work for. Strange

  • I had it done twice, the first time I had a little bleeding and a little cramping but nothing, the next week my midwife did it again and the same thing, I didnt deliver for another week. so for me nothing happened

  • it was unsuccessful for me, but i did not get an infection nor did the procedure feel painful to me. it just failed to serve it's purpose.

  • I had it done with my DD. My OB did it one week, and nothing but pain and blood, and false hope. He did it again the next week, and I had her 48 hrs later, she was also late, so I have no idea if the second stipping had anything to do with it

  • Didn't work for me. My doctor did it more than once and I had no contractions and still had to be induced at 41 weeks.
