Anyone doing this to help get labor started? My mom- a L&D nurse told me two things- sex and nipple stimulation (ummm... thanks mom haha). I have been having contractions a lot- had sex yesterday and have been doing some nipple stim. throughout the day.

Just wondering if anyone else is doing it and if so- how long and how often?

I used the double breast pump during my labor to keep things going a bit when my contractions spaced out really far. It worked!

I read somewhere, 20 minutes each hour or so...seemed like a long time to me, but who knows- if it works it could be worth it

What some reccommend is 5min on 5min off and stop during cntx. I used the double pump during my labor as well, I don't know how great it is to get labor going if its not already established though, but it does get the oxytocin flowin'.

I've been having contractions, but nothing too serious, for two days now... so just trying to keep things going.
