My neice is 39weeks, and her ob/gyn said he will give her another week to go into labor naturally without induction...anyone know of any ways to bring on labor?

we both know that...she just would rather have her baby without induction..the last pregnancy was induced at 41 weeks, baby was in stress....

Why does he want to induce her?

Sex
Walking
Clean her house (and yours too!)

Nothing will work unless the baby is ready. An induction might not even work if the baby isn't ready.

With my middle child I took some oregano oil, just a few drops in a glass of water for 3 days and I went into labor at 36w3days.  I took it to try to get rid of a cold I had had for over a month.  I later realized it can cause premature labor.   With my third child I drank rose hips tea for several days, there is a small amount in the red zinger tea(don't remember the brand) or you can find full rose hips tea at the health food store.  Other then that there is sex, walking, I think there is a recipe for chocolate labor cake and I had also heard about eggplant parm causing labor.  Oh and a specific type of foot massage.  Good Luck!

Sex and walking. Tell her to get on her hands and knees and scrub the floor. It's also good for getting the baby in the correct, face down position.
