If you have a breast pump, hook it up and use it! That's an easy way to do nipple stimulation to encourage labor.

I do have a pump, I'm planning to use it if I go over 40 weeks just because I'm desperate to avoid a c/s...but I'm only 39 weeks tomorrow so I have a bit of time.

Re: induction?

I've had 2 natural inductions that were successful. We started with EPO orally at 37 weeks and then vaginally at 38 weeks. I drank vast amounts of red raspberry leaf tea in the last few weeks. Neither of those are induction methods but they helped my body be toned and ready.

When my MW decided my cervix was favorable (75-100% effaced and dilated 2-3cm) I had my membranes stripped and used a breastpump to establish and maintain contractions. Add walking for miles and miles. Both of my inductions led to delivery within 11 hours.
