Methods of Inducing Labor

Have you passed your delivery date and still waiting for labor pain to set in to bring your baby to the world? Well, here are a few ways to jumpstart your labor...

Natural ways:
1. Nipple stimulation: Stimulating nipples will release the same hormones that are used to induce labor in a hospital.
2. Sex: Sex can stimulate the cervix to soften and dilate, inducing labor naturally. The prostaglandins present in semen and the orgasm itself can have these stimulating effects.
3. Physical activity: Walking periodically all day long, can be a safe trick to naturally induce labor.

Pressure points:
1. Massage: Certain spots in the feet and ankle if massaged carefully by a massage therapist may help induce labor.
2. Acupuncture: This not only helps induce labor, but also helps the pregnant woman to relax. A few women take a longer time to get into labor through acupuncture.
