I received a stretch and sweep at 38 week with my son. I was told I'd have him by the end of the week. An hour after the appt.  My water water broke lol.

When do you start to get the sweep at what week and will it help dilate

It isn't actually routine or needed ladies but you can ask most docs won't do it till after 37 weeks and it doesn't exactly help you dilate but is done in hopes to get contractions going to jump start labor, doesn't always work and is for sure making me feel miserable

Natashaxoxo a membrane or cervical sweep is only recommended for women past 37 weeks since it is used to help start contractions and the Labour process. It works for some women but not others. It really all depends on your body and if baby is ready or not. Out of my 3 kids I only received a sweep for one of my pregnancies because of how incredibly uncomfortable I was.
