  • There really isn't anything that will start labor unless your body is ready. You can try having sex....that might help some.

  • They say .. Spicy food works. Gets the blood flowing, which can help encourage labor.

    Things that are more common in working are ... Sex. The semen softens the cervix and orgasms use the same muscles as labor, so it helps encourage it.

    Long walks. Helps bring the baby down to encourage water breaking and labor.

    Squats. Use a bathroom counter top or something to help support you. Only do 5 at a time. This does the same as walking.

    There are also a lot of natural teas and herbs that can help encourage labor as well.
