Updated: Jul 1, 2018

First time moms often times are pregnant past their due dates! Here are some interesting- and fun ways to induce labor without medication.

  1. Make love- same hormones (#Oxytocin) flooding the body as in labor

  2. Stimulate nipples and breasts

  3. Evening #primrose oil- has prostaglandins that ripen the cervix

  4. Red raspberry leaf tea (several cups a day)

  5. Eating lots of dates-- “Date consumption during the last 4 weeks before labor significantly reduced the need for induction and augmentation of labour, and produced more favorable, but non-significant, deliveries.”

  6. Light exercise, walking, dancing, and #yoga

  7. Guided #meditations and visualization: visit (calming the nervous system) for examples

  8. Eating pineapple can stimulate uterus

  9. #Reflexology or acupuncture (link)

  10. Massage
