What is a sweep?

I was induced and had a great experience despite having intense back labour and needing an epidural.  I wouldn't change anything about it - DS was born happy and alert without any complications (I only had to push for 25-30 minutes, and even though I was numb from the waist down, I could still do it without any problem.

Good luck :-)
