The painless tiny needles could help induce labor naturally. A study at the University of North Carolina found that 70% of women who received acupuncture during pregnancy went into labor on their own.
Movement and gravity will help position your baby into place and (hopefully) start the labor process. A 30 minute walk once a day is recommended, but make sure you consult with your doctor.
Getting it on 3
Being intimate with your partner is an excellent way to get your water to break. This is due to the pelvic pressure caused during the act. The liquid once your man finishes also contains prostaglandins, which helps dilate the cervix.
Pineapple is said to increase the body's production of prostaglandins, which is known for inducing labor.
Dancing is therapeutic and great exercise, but it can also help your water break. There is proof of this with a hilarious viral video of a woman dancing in the hospital to get her water to break...and it works!
This move isn't just good for your buns! It also puts pressure and weight on your cervix, which will help move your baby further into your birth canal.
Changing positions 8
You want to avoid being stagnant and laying down when trying to induce labor. Instead, make sure to change positions and move around. Getting on all fours could also help with getting your baby in the right position.
Oregano tea 9
Steeping the fresh herb is also a natural remedy for going into labor. The plant is known as a emmenagogues, which helps stimulate blood flow to the uterus.
