Inducing Labor at home... do these ways work??

Ok.. so I am pregnant with baby #3 and going into week 37.. Reading up on ways to bring on labor at home and just wondering if they really work..

The things I have been reading say curtain herbs work like black and blue cohosh.

SEX but you and and hubby both have to have get off for it to work.

WALKING

Pineapple

Castro Oil

Do these work.. with my first 2 I was induce cause I was not going into labor.. so just wondering if these work so that when i get down to the last week I can try to help bring on the labor without the help of drugs..

  • forget about castor oil, We're trying to make my SIL to go into labor by making her walk a lot but not working might be different...

  • walking or going up and down stairs did it for me. all you can do is try, at least the first two.

  • I think they only work if you are close to going into labour anyhow.

  • nothing will work unless your body is ready. you can refuse to be induced as well.

  • Not really, but it's fun to try! (other than the castor oil - that's no fun!)
