Hi Peggy!

I have heard lots of different ideas and opinions on natural induction methods and I am wondering what you consider to be the best methods and why?

Thank you!

I'm not a big fan of induction, even natural ways, because the baby comes when the baby comes. That being said, there are times, when medical protocol threatens intervention, or when we feel we'll be pregnant forever, that we just want to try some things.


It's all about reducing tension. Do things that reduce tension. Get a good massage from someone experienced in pregnant massage. Have someone give you a food massage. Get in some water. Go to an acupuncturist experienced with pregnant women and/or have an acupressure massage (shiatsu). Orgasm and sex are free and you don't have to leave home for them. Watch a funny movie and laugh until you cry. Watch a sad movie and cry. Release. Some herbs and homeopathic remedies might help. Again, I'd want you to ask someone with experience. Go for a long walk.


Find your way to accepting things just as they are.
