  • With my 3rd I begged my midwife to strip my membranes.  She tried, it hurt, she stopped.  She refused to strip them because it was causing me pain.  It was for the best, I was just being impatient anyways.

  • The first time my doc. stripped my membranes, I didn't even know that's what he was doing. But it worked, so I asked him to do it the next two times, and it worked then, too. I was only a day or two from my due date each time, though.

  • My dr with my first stripped my membranes a few days before I was scheduled to be induced which was almost 3 weeks before my due date. It really didnt do anything as far as I could tell.

    With my 2nd, she refused. I went into labor on my own 9 days early.
