Has anyone had a membrane sweep and could tell me what its like? The midwife said if i dont give birth within 2 weeks i will have to have one and iv heard its very painful, please can people share their views, thanks.
Uncomfortable, but I think how uncomfortable depends on how 'ripe' the cervix is and how relaxed you are. I had a couple with my last baby; they left me with period type pains afterwards and didn't get the baby going either, so don't get your hopes up too much that it will do the trick for you.
Yep, uncomfortable. My midwife was lovely and explained what she was doing and was really quick. She came and did it at home too which helped. I find smear tests really painful but this was nowhere near as bad.
They booked me for one when dd was 1 day late!!it was unsuccessful. I then had another when she was 12 days late.Sorry to say I found it most unpleasant and painful. The mw was quite,well brutal!They kind of push their fingers into your cervix.
