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.

i know some women who want to do things more naturally & whe they are full term, like you are, they do a castor oil induction. Definitely please make sure to talk to your mid wife about this before you do it. She can help make sure the baby is still in the right position & everything. heres a link for more info http://www.birthingnaturally.net/cn/technique/castor.htmlAnother thing is Red Raspberry Leaf (tea). It can help wtih contractions http://www.birthingnaturally.net/cn/natural/raspberry.html& evening primrose oil http://www.birthingnaturally.net/cn/natural/primrose.htmlTheres a lot of other things on this website that yu might want to look into. I found it extremely helpful. Good luck!
