    Question pumping to induce labour?

    Has anyone tried this? Did it work?

    It is basically nipple stimulation which produces oxytocin which is what creates contractions. It can be an effective natural labour inducer if your body is ready to go into labour. I haven't seen any woman use a pump, but I have been with women who have used nipple stimulation to kickstart labour and it has worked

    Are you wanting to induce?

    Not yet, I'm only 37 weeks. By the end of next weekend, yes.

    Do you mind if I ask why? Feel free to tell me to mind my own business
