Re: Ideas for 'starting' labor...

I think it's evening primrose oil capsules. I'll double check for sure, but you can poke them and insert them in the vagina or take them orally. Also nipple stimulation works well for starting contractions. She should OK it with her doctor first, but being overdue, I'm sure it would be fine to try. To do it effectively stimulate for ten minutes and then stop for ten minutes...repeat until you get good steady contractions. It seems odd to do, but it worked for me and when you go overdue, you're almost willing to try anything.
Mommy to Cameron (8) Isabel (6) Parker (4) and Wyatt just turned 1! Expecting baby #5 on October 17th, 2008.
