  • dialate? Your body does it on it's own. You can't make yourself dialate.

  • Hormones.
    Just as the body knows how to ovulate, how to grow a placenta, how to nourish a fetus, it also knows how to prepare a body to open and deliver.

  • You cant make your body dialate. It'll happen when baby is ready to come

  • Your body will dialate when it is ready. Being sexually active, lots of walking/exercise, spicy foods, castor oil, and many other things are old wives' tales on ways to make you dialate. Just relax and let your body do it's own thing. (To be honest my last week of pregnancy I did everything but the castor oil. I walked 18 miles and climbed 314 steps my last week of pregnancy.)
