I’m struggling with this pregnancy and really want to find a way to naturally induce labour. I’ve tried everything. Do any mums out there have any secrets? Much appreciated.

  • Nothing will induce labour unless labour is imminent. Having said that, a natural, scientifically proven way to induce labour is with nipple stimulation. It takes dedication, but the release of oxytocin is what leads to contractions. If nipple stimulation gets contractions going, they may well continue on their own if labour is imminent.

  • Nothing works – tried it all – baby comes when baby wants to!

  • Eat papaya, they told me. And go for long walks.

  • sex, but didn’t work for me. raspberry leaf tea. bounce on a fit ball

  • Sex sex and more sex

  • Book a pedicure and go to a cinema~! (or stay home, have sex and eat curry..)

  • go for a walk and have plenty of sex

  • Yep lots of curry and spices and lots of baths wish you all the luck.

  • lots of walking! anything spicy..and pineapple.

  • how did you go? :)

  • Simply walking and being busy. Nesting is a good idea. Cleaning out cupboards etc..

  • go for walks and keep active, this will help also sex and orgasm can help soften the cervix

  • i agree with letting nature takes it course

  • there are some good comments here

  • just remember that might not be good for the baby to come early unless your in rral bad pain ill let it happen when it happens
