Inducing Labor at Home – Three Methods You Can Start Right Now

Inducing Labor at Home – Three Methods You Can Start Right Now

First, I would like to give you a warm congratulations for the baby that is about to bless your life. However, right now, you are probably in a lot of pain because that due date has come and gone. I have been in your shoes before. I know how it feels to be pregnant and have the due date pass you by. It’s miserable, point blank. Have you ever thought about inducing labor at home? Many do not know that they can induce labor in the comfort of their own home. Instead, they turn to the doctor to give them medications to bring on labor. Those medications have side effects that could harm the baby. I know you do not want to harm your baby and that is why I want to tell you ways that can help you out.

First on our list, there are spicy foods. Did you know that consuming foods that are spicy can induce labor? It’s true. In fact, this is a very popular method.

When I was pregnant and the due date passed, it was one of the tips that our midwife gave us. My husband loves spicy food but I really don’t, but at that point, I was willing to try anything to relieve the misery we were in. It’s so hard to wait for the baby come!

Relaxation is another technique that the midwife told us about. Your body is so tight to the point that the baby is not going to come out. When you are relaxing, you will be loosening up your body a bit. Relaxation includes bubble baths, massage, reading, resting in the recliner as you are watching a movie or whatever else you like to do.

Inducing labor at home is not that hard to do. All you have to do is follow these two methods we just told you about. Apart from these two methods, there is a third one that is widely popular and has a great success rate. That method is acupressure.

Research has been conducted and is showing that over eighty percent of pregnant women who use acupressure to induce labor experience a normal labor with less complications than other women that do not use the techniques. Did you know that it can also shorten the amount of time one is in labor?
