Re: Are natural methods to induce labor...

In the end, the only thing that will MAKE baby come is a c/s. Baby will come when baby is ready. Pitocin/cervadil/etc. can hurry it along, but if baby isn't ready, it won't work, which is why there's that whole cascade of interventions issue leading to c/s.

Having said that, this past Friday we had pineapple for dinner, DD1 nursed for a half-hour, then DH and I did a bit of another natural induction technique... and DD was born just before 2am on Saturday morning after a four-hour labor. I like to think one of those things worked.
