How to induce labor at home
A normal pregnancy lasts an average of 40 weeks. Childbirth is considered timely and at 38 weeks and at 42, that is, with a gap of almost a month. Doctors consider this to be quite normal, but for a woman who walks, each new day seems like an eternity. To speed up the appearance of the baby, you can try to resort to inducing labor at home.
A woman can induce childbirth on her own only if her body is already ripe for this and it lacks only a small push to start the process, so do not be afraid to harm yourself or your child. The main thing is not to overdo it, carried away by evocation.
If your pregnancy proceeds without complications and the supervising doctor has not imposed a ban on sexual activity, have sex. Semen contains prostaglandin, a biologically active substance that softens the cervix and stimulates the onset of labor.
Oxytocin also takes part in the start of childbirth, a woman can start the production of this hormone in the body on her own by simply stimulating the nipples. It is very important not to overdo it, massage the nipples with smooth and gentle movements, but only until the process does not cause you negative sensations. If during the massage you feel uneasy and even feel bad, immediately stop it.
Physical activity can also induce labor. Many women claim that an intense walk, before which they ate a bar of dark chocolate, helped them.
You can also induce labor with one radical remedy that Western midwives use with success, but before you decide on it, make sure that in which case you will have the opportunity to quickly get to the hospital, call a doctor or midwife.
The miracle remedy is a cocktail, which includes 50 g of castor oil, 100 g of apricot juice and 40 g of vodka. After taking a cocktail in a pregnant woman, the intestines begin to clear, under the influence of spasms of which the uterus also contracts. Childbirth in this case can begin quite suddenly, so be extremely careful. Check with your doctor before taking a cocktail, or do it under his direct supervision.
But no matter how difficult the last days may seem, no one remained pregnant forever. Surrender to the flow of time and do not rush things. Your baby is also eager to meet you as soon as possible, as soon as he is ready for this, labor will begin on its own without additional help.
Some women claim that general cleaning in the house helped them induce childbirth, after which they immediately went to the hospital.
