Re: Due Yesterday - Tips Anyone?!

stop worrying. no reason to induce you AT ALL unless you have an ACTUAL PHYSICAL MEDICAL reason, like severe pre-e.
your body will birth your baby when you are both ready.
meditate. talk to your baby, let them know you are ready and waiting.
have sex with your partner, sperm gives prostaglandins to the cervix which helps it ripen. orgasms can also aid in starting contractions if your body is ready.
hospital inductions are NEVER a good idea for just about anyone. and most often lead to c-section and a very dissapointing birth experience for both mama and baby.

stay away from anyone who puts pressure on you to have the baby.
know that your time will come and it will be wonderful, you and your baby will have the best experience possible if you just put trust in yourself, your body and your baby.
