  • Supposedly it helps the baby move down further in your pelvis, but it doesn't help put you in labor, it only helps if you're in labor already. When I was prego with my daughter I walked all the time and I was still late and ended up getting my water broken.

  • Walking can help baby to move lower into the pelvis but also is a safe exercise. Exercise can help get the uterus moving (which is why some women are put on bed rest: even the littlest bit of movement can stimulate contractions).

    Nipple stimulation can release a chemical in the body which stimules contractions...but oftentimes this are super strong, so it's not the best way to START labor...better to be used to help keep things progressing.
