I'd leave it alone. Yes, it CAN induce labor OR it can break your water and nothing else will happen...or nothing at all will happen. But, why not just have the baby when it comes? Really, if you're comfortable with the backup midwife, why not just wait till the BABY is ready? It'll let you know unmistakably that it's time!!! If you are really bent, though, on speeding things up, I'd say try evening primrose oil first. It can ripen your cervix and make an induction more effective.
