Same reason nursing helps your uterus contract back down to normal... I think it releases a hormone... But some women tandem nurse so I don't think it brings on labor for everyone...

if babys not read yot come out nipple stimulation is not going to help! Some women nurse their other child the whole pregnancy with no problems.

Its the oxytocin that is released with nipple stimulation, sex or the drug potocin to induce.

 DH and I have tried nipple stimulation 4 times and nothing. Not even a tiny BH contraction, I think it just depends on your body and baby if it'll work or not

When i hit 34weeks i will start with inserting these lil vitamin pills to help my cervix soften when its ready, then start walking more, also after 37weeks i will be eating spicy food,then i will do nip stimulation with my pump lol i will not be induced by my dr ever again haha. I also have a doula that will help naturally induce me. Im only 22weeks.
