I was induced for both of my pregnancies, its the same thing as goung into labor becausr you still feel the contractions and you gotta push the baby out, for my second pregnancy i tried everything to bring in the contractions and nothing worked, i tried walking, having sex, eating pineapple, drinking cinnamon tea, dancing, squatting and nothing lol, but wouldnt hurt to try, good luck and congrats

I was induced with my 3rd. It wasn't so bad. I was only in labor for 4 hours. Some women take a lot longer when being induced. If you want to try to help labor along on your own. Walk alot, do squats, have sex, you could drink I think it's a quart if prune juice, I heard lots of basil in your pasta helps, evening primrose oil, cinnamon tea, ginger tea, cumin tea, castor oil, there's supposed to be some recipe for eggplant parmesan you can try, Clary sage oil, you could bounce on a birth ball and you can dance.
