Post subject: Ways of bringing on labour?
Yes I'm a little early to start thinking about this but would like to do some research beforehand (as it is likely that I will be induced - would like to try and get a head-start)!

So I know that I will need to keep active and upright (no slouching on the sofa) to try and get baby in the right position....

....and stuff like eating pineapple and having sex etc...

Anybody heard of anything else that might help baby on it's way????

Tbh I think baby will just come when its ready. Ive read of women trying countless old wives tales and nothing happening at all.

we had this discussion at Yoga the other night.

Things we came up with were.

Sex
Fresh Pineapple- only the centre though and you need to eat about 8!
Bouncing up and down on a ball (yoga ball)
Being relaxed (loads of my class have gone into labour after the class! )
Long walks
Castor Oil
Eating Chillies/hot curry
Acupuncture
Reflexology
Pinching the bit of skin in-between your your thumb and index finger.
Nipple Stimulation.
