  • Sew won't stimulate labor. The big O will possibly cause contractions, but they won't be real labor contractions. In addition the male ejaculate is really good for you. It's often recommended that you have a lot of sex in the last few months and weeks to help soften the cervix. This helps you to dilate. Tell him the benefits out weigh the risks in this situation! You can look it up on Dr. Spock or Dr. Sears, or if you want to show him proof from a more reliable source.

  • Unless your cervix is already effacing and dilating it won't do anything at all.

  • Yea my midwife encouraged me to have sex in hopes to induce labour and it didn't work. Also I heard foot rubs induce, but that didn't work either. Tell him its ok.
