Hi ladies, am potentially being induced next week at 38 weeks due to type 1 diabetes. They're going to do an internal exam first to check my cervix and see how well im likely to respond to an induction at that stage and if its still hard (obs said carrot like!!?!) they'll leave me another week if everything else is still okay.
Either way it appears that induction is impending and im wondering if there anything I can do eg exercises or eating anything in particular that might increase chances of induction getting things going and lessen the chance of needing intervention?
Hi, with my last pregnancy I was due to be induced at 39w with sweeps starting at 38w. My MW suggested acupuncture to prepare the cervix so I went with it. I had 2 sessions of acupuncture, the sweep at 38+1 and my DS was born at 38+2 without need for any other intervention. Obviously not a clinical trial proving acupuncture works but I will try the same again this time round too. HTH x
