6 Ways for Inducing Labor Naturally

Aug 25, 2008
It's inevitable if you are working with a OB-Gyn you will face the threat of chemical induction when you get past 42 weeks.

It seems to be the magic number for them and they will want your baby to come out, whether it wants to or not.

If you are opposed to a chemical induction, and are being left with few choices you can try some of these methods for inducing labor naturally.

Walking

This is one that has been around forever. Walk and walk and walk. The motion allows room for the baby to engage and to move down sometimes inducing labor. It is best to walk briskly, as briskly as you can of course.

Homeopathics

There are a variety of homeopathic remedies that will help to induce labor naturally. Even though these are natural products it is important to work with homeopathics with a qualified doula, midwife or homeopathic doctor. These homeopathics work very well, but make sure you do not try them because you are tired of being pregnant, but because you are "overdue".

Natural Herbs

Much like homeopathics there are herbal remedies that will help you to induce labor naturally. These are best taken with the instruction of a qualified midwife, and with someone else available to help you. You will need to time your doses and it can get confusing when you start having contractions in the middle.

These are very powerful herbs and are not to be taken lightly. Please make sure you are under the supervision of a midwife or herbal doctor.

Castor Oil

This method generally works very well. It is disgusting and tastes awful, but it works. The main concern with this method of natural induction is it will cause you to have diarrhea, and if for some reason it does not induce labor it can also cause your baby to have bowel movements introducing meconium to the mix.

Again this is a very powerful natural induction technique and should only be taken when supervised by a qualified midwife.

Managing Birthing Fear

This may seem strange to some, but it is often times our subconscious fears that keep us from going into labor and progressing through labor.

It is in your best interest to manage and dispell your fears about labor and delivery long before you get to your due date. You can effectively manage these fears using EFT, or even just talking to someone.

There you have 6 methods for inducing labor naturally. All are best used under the guidance of a qualified natural childbirth professional.

I will say that no matter how many different ways you try to induce your baby if the baby is not ready they will not work, sometimes it is our emotions and fear that hold back labor and sometimes the baby just isn't ready to make an appearance.
