Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

A couple questions about being induced...

5 answers
3 years ago
Has anybody been induced by having their membranes stripped? It seems like the most natural way, I just want to know how well it actually works. I'm due Monday, and will hopefully be induced by next week-end if I don't go on my own. I'm generally againt being induced, because it doesn't seem natural to me, but I'm totally done being pregnant this time! My midwife has said that the baby cannot grow any more, because there is no space left in my abdomen. Baby takes up the entire space from ribs to pubic bone, and as far on my sides as where my arms rest. (WAY bigger then my first! Which is scary, because she was almost 8lbs...). I figure if the baby can't grow any more, it's probably time to come out! I've been walking as much as possible, and lost my mucous plug about 2 weeks ago, so I don't think any "home remedies" will work.

I had my membranes stripped with my first baby. The stripping itself was really uncomfortable for me and caused me to have lots of cramping afterwards.. it did not however cause me to actually go into labor.. after the dr had done this two days in a row on the third day I actually went into the hospital and was induced..good luck though everyone is different it may work great for you.. =)

When I was pregnant with my daughter; one week before my due date my OB stripped my membrane hoping to induce my labor because I was dialated 1 cm.  Fast forward to 3 days after my due date, my water broke around midnight.  I was only at 2 cm and by 6 am still there.  So they pushed pitocin.  My daughter was born at 6:57pm and weighed 9lbs 12oz and was 22in long.  So, it didn't work for me.  Lol
