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.
what the heck is strpping your membranes?????
well I would still have tried and what class is this? I wanted to have this baby weeks ago she is a pork chop already that I have to do a c section would have wished to go sooner and natural
