How to Make Labor Come Faster?

Answer

There is a lot that can be said about the joys of birth... and getting it over with quickly. lol! Over the centries there have been many practical and unpractical methods of inducing labor. In the early 1900's and before it was believed that you could induce labor by riding in a carriage (or automobile later) over a bumpy road back and forth for awhile. This I think would only lead to back pain.
Some other methods that have been known to work are pressure points in the palms of the hands. If you have your partner (or anyone else) rub the palm of your hands upward starting at the middle of the wrist, it will help the body get ready to induce labor. Another method would be Blue cohosh, which is an herb that helps to regulate menstruation. It is not recommended to be taken before or during a pregnancy because it will cause a miscarriage, but is effective with inducing labor once one is at term. Consult a doctor before trying these since they may interfere with other medications or treatments. Other than that, mother nature tends to know what she's doing. Hope everything comes out ok.

You have to be sure to be past the 37 week mark at least. Once you have cleared the 37 week mark you can start taking long walks ,squatting or even try having sex because the orgasm can bring on contractions. Some women try nipple stimulation but this should be under a doctors supervision so you can perhaps bring that up to your doctor and try that.
