tglenn, There are many ways to naturally stimulate the onset of labor.
After you have sex be sure to NOT get up right away and be sure to elevate your hips to let the prostaglandin in the semen coat the cervix. This helps to ripen (soften) the cervix.
Also, nipple stimulation will bring on contractions. Using the balls of your fingertips to "roll" the nipples as well as stimulating the areola and breast will/can bring on strong and regular contractions.
Walking will also help.
There are many VERY effective natural herbs and teas that can be purchased at the natural health food store that will also bring on labor. They REALLY DO WORK! Do a search online for a list of them as well as the most effective that would best suit you.
Good luck to you sweetie!
