natural remedies for inducing labor

I am 37 weeks and I know they say it's not safe to try to induce labor on your own,  BUT I have naturally been having early labor symptoms. I am having irregular contractions, back pain, menstrual like cramps,  my mucus plug has came out,  nausea, and of course pressure.  I am curious to know what are some Natural remedies to help jump start the labor,  considering my body is giving signals it's ready. (No negative comments please)

Fresh pineapple and walking.  Also I was told chamomile tea.

Walking, spicy food, and having sex.

Use a breast pump to stimulate your nipples. This causes contractions and is what happens when you nurse to help your uterus shrink back down.

Good luck. I'm 37+4 and walk like crazy and sex but baby is still not ready. I was 2 cm and 100% effaced and baby is head down and in position. I guess baby will come when he is ready. I know I'm very ready
