how many weeks are you?

you can do things to encourage contractions and ripen the cervix but you can't actually make labour start if you are not ready!

you are doing the right things. but sometimes patience is required !

I went into labour with my first after a morning of aqua-natal and an afternoon bouncing on the birthing ball while drinking raspberry leaf tea. If I can summon up the energy I will do the same this time too! Good luck!

a stretch and sweep kick started labour with DD

however, as lulu says if you aren't ready then nothing will do it ...

Walk, walk and walk again.

It might not help get you into labour, but it should help speed things up once labour starts.

Nipple tweaking honestly it's fab for bringing on contractions. Get tweaking!
