Natural Labor Induction

By  Lori Ramsey of Stages-in-Pregnancy.com

If you find that you are over due in your pregnancy, you may want to consider natural labor inductions. Before I go over these, I implore you to seek the advice of your healthcare provider first. Make sure that you and your baby are healthy enough to attempt a natural labor induction.

What constitutes “over due”? A due date is calculated according to the last menstrual period. An assumption is that you ovulate on day 14 of your cycle, and thus your “due date” is established. If you are one that ovulates much later, it can actually mean that you are due several days to even weeks later. Keep this in mind when determining your due date and whether or not you are over due.

Natural methods include:

  • Castor Oil – this is one of the oldest methods around. Castor oil was given regularly by physicians many years ago for its ability to clean out the body. It causes the bowels to clean out and it’s thought to cause the onset of labor as well. Extreme caution should be used with this method, as it’s been found that some babies born to mothers who took castor oil had meconium in the amniotic fluid. Probably because the castor oil also crossed the placenta and cleaned out the baby’s bowels too.
  • Enemas – Some hospitals routinely perform an enema on a laboring mother to help clean out the bowels in preparation for birth. It also helps to facilitate labor.
  • Fasting and dehydration – these methods work in a way that the body will try to get rid of anything that’s taking up resources (food and water). When a pregnant mom fasts and with-holds water, the body will go into labor. Many moms suffering from pre-term labor will find that dehydration is what caused it. Simple re-hydration will halt the process. Again, this is a dangerous method and should only be used with care from your healthcare provider.
  • Herbs – these have been used by midwives for years to induce labor. Herbs such as black and blue cohosh, borage oil, evening primrose oil, goldenseal, mugwort and yarrow help to induce labor. Evening primrose oil has prostaglandins and when applied directly to the cervix will help it to thin and dilate.
  • Intercourse – While having sex during pregnancy normally does not bring on labor – if the cervix is ripe and ready – the prostaglandins in semen can cause the cervix to thin (efface) and dilate. Having an orgasm at this point can help to bring on contractions! This is probably one of the most fun ways of inducing labor.
  • Nipple Stimulation – stimulating the nipples causes the hormone oxytocin to be released. Oxytocin helps to get the uterus to contract. Normally this is done by “rolling” the nipples between the thumb and forefinger for about 20 minutes each every hour until labor is established.
  • Swinging – it’s a wives tale that swinging can bring on labor. Might be something about the back and forth motion. When I was 30 weeks pregnant I went swinging at the park and went into labor that night – I’m sure it’s really not “why” but it may have helped.

There are also medical inductions such as the application of prostaglandin gel to the cervix , breaking the bag of waters (if the cervix is dilated enough), IV drip of Pitocin (which works much the same as oxytocin), and the stripping of the membranes.

Before you try any of the natural labor induction methods listed above, please seek the advice of your healthcare provider first. Doing any of these if there’s a problem with you or the baby could be very dangerous. Always use great caution!
