Hi mummies, I will be 40 weeks tomorrow and seems baby is very comfortable inside. No sign of contraction or anything at all. My gynae already arrange for inducement on Friday but Im worried coz heard if no sign of contraction, inducement will be more painful. Any advise to try to kick start contraction naturally??

Ur first pregnancy? Yes it’s more painful for inducement compared to natural contraction. Good thing for inducement is that u can plan for ur delivery and avoid ur baby from growing too big which will cause u difficulty in having natural birth.

Do more squats or have sex! (Semen is a good softener for the cervix!) Have you ask your gynae to do a membrance sweep to kick start the labour?
