Have you ever tried nipple stimulation w/a pump to bring on contractions heavier?

I saw on the net you could use your breast pump to stimulate nipples for bringing on contractions. has anyone ever tried this?

  • I would only do it w/ doctor's approval. Not just because you want to have the baby "now". I had to do a stress test once at the hospital & was instructed to stimulate my nipples to cause some contractions so they could see if the baby could tolerate labor or not because I was having some problems where they were needing to see how soon I could deliver.
