So... I am now 3wks 1day 'overdue'! My mother has told me I was overdue by over a month, and went into labor by falling!! My mother-in-law was in between 2 1/2-4weeks overdue for all three of her boys. I was seeing a mid-wife, but now am considered 'high-risk' and have to see a Dr. I've just met twice a week until the baby is born. Of course the Dr. has been pressuring me to induce!! I have purchased black cohosh, but don't think I'll be taking it!! I did buy some castor oil, as a last resort, but I really am getting tired of being poked, prodded, and monitored!! The baby is healthy and I'm healthy, which is the most important thing! I'm 50% effaced, less than 2cm dilated. I'm thinking of taking CO in the morning, Ina May style... guess I'm looking for support or advice?!
I had sweeping done at 41w5 with my last and went into labour that night. They wanted to induce the next day, so I'm grateful it worked.

You can try accupressure points to induce labour. Here is a link http://www.maternityacupressure.com/acupressure-start-labor/acupressure-to-induce-labor.html
I personally wouldn't do CO. It not only induces labour, but also has a high chance of inducing vomiting and diarrhea. Labour is bad enough without vomit and diarrhea!
Accupuncture can work.
Sex may be worth a try.
A good breast pump may help.
