Okay, so every day now I’m getting asked if the baby has popped yet, and every day I cry a little more when I say NO. But as part of that journey, I’ve been told many, many ways I can naturally induce labor, from the standard “have sex” and “take long walks” to the downright strange… I’ve even been sent links to recipes that are supposedly supposed to help labor get started!
So I’m going to post them all here for you to read. Oh what fun!
Some of these seem normal… Some are a bit odd… And some are just plain out there, but I’ll put a disclaimer here. I do NOT endorse using ANY of these methods to get your baby to come out. Use your own common sense, and talk to your doctor, OB, or midwife before trying any of these methods. If you’re high-risk (or even having a normal pregnancy) many of these things can cause complications and problems.
Basically, this post is JUST FOR FUN – I’m not a doctor! (more…)
