Breast pump to induce labour? thunderthighs Due August 22; 2 kids; Iowa 2411 posts

How effective is this, does it work, and how long does it take to work?
Please I really would like to go into labour naturaly, but my cervix hates me, I have tonight and tomorrow before geting induced, my Dr said he'll only let me be in labour for 56 hours before doing a c-section, I have tried walking, spicy foods, birthing ball, blue and black cohosh, basicly everything but sex, as my DH is not here for that, and yes even masturebation:oops: to try to start uterine contractions.
Please if you ladies have any ideas please share. Thank you.

You could give it a try. I have no idea how long that would take for nipple stimulation to help.

i heard too much nipple stimulation can cause your contractions to be 10 minutes a piece :shock:

I did it....




But i always thought it might have been to blame for my placental abruption. I started contracting very hard and it made my water break with incredible force. And the force of my water breaking pulled some of the placenta free from the uterine wall.



And i hemorrhaged.

I tried all of that and sex nothing worked. With my first born I got SO upset about food and went in to labor. With my daughter I was two days late and on the third day my doctor ringed my cervix and I started contracting in his office!

You poor woman! I hope your baby comes soon!

Sounds like you've tried everything under the sun to kick start labor, so why not try the nipple stimulation as well?? GOOD LUCK! **LABOR DUST**
