Having sex is said to help induce labor. Supposedly there is something in the semen that helps the process along if conditions are right! Some people even swear by certain foods such as spicy food or seafood. I've also heard leg and foot massages b/c there are certain pressure points that will induce labor....again if conditions are right! Good Luck!

Don't know if it works, but try tea with raspberry leaves in it. Supposedly this will bring on contractions and I don't know if it was coincidence or not, but I went into labor about 4 hours after having a couple cups of strong raspberry tea.

Re: how can i make myself go into labor without being inused

hi there. i tried alsorts to make labour come on, and i believe the thing that helped for me was, i bought a birthing ball, well actually the one i got was called an excersize ball, and i sat and spent many hours bouncing on that ball! someone recomended this to me, and it had worked for them and i believe it worked for me! i was 10 days overdue,and was bouncing on that ball when my waters broke, 3 days before i had my daughter, but still believe it would ahve been longer without that ball!!
