I am booked in to be induced in 8 days and I’m so scared as my last 2 were completely natural and pretty easyish labours (no drugs and not long) and Ive heard being induced medically if your body isn’t ready could make a hard labour and can end in c-section – that frightens me even more. My question is, are there any positive stories from being induced?
Also what can i do to naturally start labour myself? I have been taking raspberry leaf and evening primrose oil as directed by the midwife just wondering if much else can help my midwife and ob explained the following but its alot that needs to be done
Sex has to be 3-4 times a day for 3-6days straight with organisms and semen every time
Pineapple u have to eat 7-9 whole ones a day
Curry u have to eat alot of as well
I have heard accuputure or reflexology has anyone had success with this or is it u have to do it so many times for it to work as well?
TIA for all the advice and help
