It didn't work for me I'm afraid. but then again, ds clearly had no intention of coming out (was 16 days late). I think it only works if you are ready to go? Good luck to your sil though!!

DS1 - Sweep on thursday AM (5 days over), but didn't go into labour until Sunday night/Monday morning. I don't think it was connected

DS2 - Didn't work (8 days over, induced at 10 days over)

DD - Sweep Monday AM (10 days over), went into labour that night/early Tuesday morning.

HTH, and good luck to your SIL

I had 4 sweeps before I finally went into labour 12 days overdue.

midwife told me it should happen in 24 hours if it is going to work. i had two which did not work within that time but i did have a show after them both so i think they did help. ds3 was 1st time i had sweep and 1st time i was not induced
