Natural induction techniques

The reply is currently minimized ShowHi Mackenzie,
You may want to review the section in your materials (class 4) about calculating your Guess Date - there is also a reference to a study that came out of Harvard in 1992 that shows that the average length of gestation for first time moms is just past 41 weeks (41+1). Also a good reminder that not all babies need the same amount of time in the womb (they 'cook' at different rates).
Remembering that up to 42 weeks is completely normal may help curb that natural impatience (& wanting to meet your baby!). Also reminding yourself that your baby will let you know when he/she is ready - unless there is a medical reason, it's best to let your baby decide when they are ready to be born...on his/her birth day!
If induction is being discussed (there is a medical indication) then yes, there are many natural ways of inducing birthing waves. You can review the information in Class 3 (interventions - specifically, inductions) for specific ideas! :-)
