Re: Stripping/Sweeping membranes?

When they strip or sweep the membranes you need to be at least 2 or 3 cm dilated , they stick a couple of fingers in your cervix and sweep their fingers from side to side to separate your bag of waters from your cervix . The reason I won't try it till after 40 weeks though is it has been know to actually break a womans bag of waters .
