Best Ways to Induce labor


Stimulate your nipples

Stimulating nipples cause the uterus to contract. This might bring about labor as nipple stimulation increases oxytocin production. Oxytocin hormone causes the breast to eject milk and the uterus to contract. In fact, it is the same hormone that causes your uterus to shrink back to its original position. However, you will have to breastfeed your baby right after the delivery.

If you do not know how to stimulate the nipples, you can use a breast pump. Other than that, nipple stimulation also reduces the chances of postpartum hemorrhage, avoids medication labor induction, and augments labor.

Try Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional treatment used for thousands of years. It is a well-known treatment in Chinese medicine. People believe that it releases some kind of vital or chi energy within the body. Moreover, it stimulates changes in the nervous system and hormones. However, you should only do it through a registered acupuncturist.

 In Denmark, 400 women every year are given membrane stripping and acupuncture before labor/birth. While stripping membranes does not induce labor, the acupuncture treatment decreases the need for medical induction.

Have sex

There are many reasons why having sex with your partner can induce labor. Having an orgasm during sex releases the oxytocin hormone. The increased production of oxytocin might start uterus contractions. Ultimately, inducing labor.

Moreover, the prostaglandin hormone found in the semen might help open the cervix. Engaging in sexual intercourse in the final weeks of pregnancy is fine, however, you should not have sex after your water has broken. This might increase the risk of infection.

Any activity that gets your heart rate up can be a viable way to induce labor. If you are trying to hurry your baby along, try taking a long walk or doing gentle exercises. Even if the exercise does nothing to induce your labor, it is still a great way to relieve stress and get your body moving. It can also help to prepare your body for when your labor does start.

Having Sex

This is one of the first things you always hear when you're trying to induce labor. Having sex raises your heart rate, preparing your body for labor. Having an orgasm during sexual activity also releases a specific chemical called oxytocin. This chemical can cause your uterus to begin contracting. While having sex may help you to induce labor, you should not continue sexual activity after your water has broken. It can put you at a higher risk for infection.
