I'm dilated to 4cm and in L&D they won't let me go home .. I'm not having painful contractions and hardly feel them... How can I get my contractions started naturally while being in the hospital?

Since you posted awhile ago but I will just add for people who do have slowed down contractions in the hospitals some hospitals will let you walk around continously for a bit then check to see if there is any change, you might even want to try nipple stimulation that can produce oxytoxcin .

I would also suggest delaying the IV fluids until the contractions get up to more speed as sometimes when your getting extra fluids into your body your contractions can stop or slow down when your middle of the labor for some reason .

Thank you.. My husband and I have tried walking around the hospital put I have too much pain in my hips and I've tried nipple stimulation it started working at first but for some reason it won't work anymore .. My husband is making me eat spicy food tonight to see if that has any affect on me . Hopefully I'll get to meet my baby boy soon =)
