it is the same thing, its a precedure a midwive/ob does taking their finger and "Sweeping" the bag from the end of the cervix, its "supposed" to help induce labor.. but is like everything else, only works when body and baby are ready

I dont think so?
Its like everythign else like sex you know, if you and baby arent ready it just doesnt happen. My dr did tell me that I could just cramp for two days with nothing happening at all. Or I could go into labor. It really all depends. I hope it doesnt hurt anything since i got it done today. LOl

they are detaching the sac from the uterus at the cervical opening. It can cause your water to break - which puts you 'on the clock' since you'd have to deliver within a certain amount of hours after your water breaks. Thats my biggest fear about it.

this is what they do:

Usually, a membrane sweep will be carried out by your doctor or midwife either while you're at home or in the doctors surgery itself. They are performed during an internal examination and involve your midwife inserting a finger into your cervix (to stretch it a little) and then making a firm, circular, sweeping movement around the neck of your womb. This movement helps to separate your cervix from the membranes of the sac that is currently housing your baby, and is a procedure that helps to stimulate the release of prostaglandins - the hormones that signal to your brain that it's time to start labour.

What they do is they run their finger or fingers aroundto separate the bag of waters from the wall over your cervix opening.

Although I have never heard of the complication that it can break your water?? I had it doen several times with several of my pregnancies and it never broke my water.

But yes... if your body and the baby are not ready, it will not trigger labor.
