Shes already made up her mind, if she wants to force her baby to come out before its time and risk complications, its her choice. If she wants to be naive and think that just because her baby is healthy inside her means that she will be just as healthy trying to breathe the air in this world, then let her think that. But honestly people like this is why I wish there was some law stating that ignorant people cannot reproduce. If your baby is healthy now then there is no risk in aiming for 40 weeks but there is a risk for forcing a baby to come out early regardless of how healthy it may be. A lot of strong mothers go through hell waiting for their due date and you just want to rush her out because you cant wait. Even if a doctor/midwife said that a baby can be delivered before their due date doesn't mean they can say that without first saying there could be complications associated with it. If they tell you its 100% safe to force your baby to come before your due date then that doctor/midwife needs to be reported. In the end the only person that is going to suffer for your stupidity is that poor innocent baby.

I wouldn't say she's 'forcing' the baby out I mean there's no real way to induce yourself anyway, the question regardless of opinions on the topic, is kind of pointless. There's no real way of inducing without pit, or medications. Unless you break your own water in which your effing retarded but she's not talking about that either.

Well technically there are ways if you have no regards for safety but if you read this entire topic from the beginning to end she sounds a little bi polar and capable of who knows what. So forcing still sounds pretty good to me.

Yeah I suppose. Well whatever she chooses to do, whether it be to force or whatever. If it were the wrong choice there will be some type of consequence.

"Getting things started" before they start on their own, especially at 37 weeks, IS forcing her out. Many women on here have had 37 weekers who needed to spend time in the NICU. We DO know our facts. Most of us LIVE these facts every day. I am a mom to a 36 weeker, a 35 weeker, and a 37 weeker.



Your due date, if you look carefully will be written as EDD or EDC, which means ESTIMATED due date, or ESTIMATED Date of Confinement. You're not the only one who has ever come in here asking about kickstarting labor at 37 weeks(some have even asked about it a little earlier than that), and they are told the same things you have been told. A) that nothing will work until your body is ready, and B ) Your due date may be off by as much as 2 weeks.

You don't know what will or won't "hurt." Some home remedies are harmless. Walking, rocking on a yoga ball, sex...harmless. Because that's not going to make your body go into labor unless its 100% ready. But certain methods, like nipple stimulation, can ABSOLUTELY force your body into labor before your baby is ready. Unless you know the severity of what you're doing and its potential effects, you should probably stop being rude

Most of the women who answered you DO have children(I have 3 and am due with my 4th in July), and we DO look after them. Mine are currently sleeping.

I just wanted to say that even though I gave you some tips, you don't actually know that the baby is 'ready'
I did all the home remedies to have my 'growing nicely' baby and when she was born she was small for gestation and spent a few days in scbu because she couldn't keep her body temperature up. Then she had incredibly low weight gain the first few weeks and almost ended up in hospital on a drip and having tests. She lost quite a bit of weight dropped to 4lbs and had a hard time keeping weight on.
She was born at the same gestation as my other 2 who were completely fine.
I didn't think an almost 39 weeker would be so small and have body temperature issue and weight gain problems,
chances are if you had your baby tomorrow shell probably be fine, but it does happen.

Shit. I was actually being nice.
