Stripping of the membranes question Miss.Meghan[Aydens Mommy] 1 child; Florence, Kentucky 829 posts

Today in class we were talking about women who strip their membranes at home by themselves. It is most commonly done by women who are attempting a home birth.
I am curious as to how many women have done this, and the success rate?



Hell, I may even try it myself in a few weeks if the success rate is high enough!




Also, I would just like to add, please no bashing mothers who respond to this thread. Stripping your own membranes is just as safe as having a physician do it as long as you are far enough along and dilated and also making sure your hands are clean and sterile.
