Natural Ways of Induction

I am now two days past my due date. However, only 5% of women actually deliver on their due date. Babies have a way of coming when they want to. But if you are impatient like me and have a schedule to keep like I do you may need the comfort of trying out some natural induction techniques.


Here are some of the most common ways to encourage baby to be on your time schedule:

  • Chiropractic adjustments – my favorite

  • Walking lots and lots

  • Spicy foods

  • Acupuncture – not my favorite due to needles but they can do acupressure also

  • Sex – well isn’t that everyone’s favorite?

  • Nipple stimulation – you can use a breast pump for this

  • Uterine Tonic Tinctures (black cohosh, evening primrose oil)

  • Caster oil – talk to your doctor first as this can have some unpleasant side-effects

  • Lots of bouncing on a ball

  • Massage therapy

  • Reflexology Points – helps some but not everyone

I have been walking, taking the Uterine Tonic since 37 weeks, eating spicy foods as they are my favorite, doing some acupuncture, bouncing on the ball and tomorrow will go get a massage if nothing exciting is happening.
