Well, if it weren't for laws I would be all for waiting for the baby in any case, so long as the vitals were good and baby was doing well.

But where I live and will end up practicing when I am done we can't have them go longer than 2 weeks over. If we know a mother has a previous history of going 2 weeks or + there are things we would do like herbs and having the mother to chat with her baby that it is okay to come. If we get within a few days of that date we do offer things such as stronger herbs, and stretching. We also encourage them to do all the things they can at home such as sex and nipple stimulation.

I think dodging that hospital birth is worth trying some natural things to get labor started.
