  • Things you can do to prep and prime your body for labor include;
    1. Walking
    2. Chiropractic alignment
    3. Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
    4. Acupuncture

  • 39 week & 5 days… tried everything still not go through labor…I am really tired & frustrated… tomorrow I have to admit into hospital…if I didn’t go through it naturally Dr. Gonna induce me tomorrow…but want it naturally cos sometime labor induction fail & have to go through c section…. don’t know what will happen ������

  • What if your husband won’t have sex with you then what? �� I’ve tried everything but sex I guess she will come when she comes. �� So done

  • Im 39weeks and 4 days and dont feel any changes or discomfort plus im not even dilated a little bit so my Dr is going to induce me in 5 days. �� I just wish my baby would come naturally instead of forcing him out… I really dont want to end up having a C-section.

  • Absolutely love your videos!! 39 weeks preg and currently bingeing on all your vids. You are so well spoken and engaging. Keep up the amazing work:-)

  • Just wanted to add in, you said if you are trying to decide between going home or staying at the hospital, then go home. Be careful giving that advice though because I was advised to go home even though I was in labor because the nurse thought it would be a while. Came back 3 hours later much further along. Then to my surprise, when I got my bill, I was charged TWICE for an “ER visit” because they somehow get away with billing labor and delivery triage as ER. Even with good insurance, that was an extraordinarily expensive bill. I would have rather stayed at the hospital for hours than had to pay that hefty bill twice. Not to mention, a lot of people cant afford that. It’d be nice if patients were warned about that before being told to go home and come back later.

  • 39 weeks pregnant, my mom & mother in law keep telling me to walk walk walk & im just like umm I don’t think it’s working. I’m not dialated at all but my cervix is soft according to my doctor. But I just wish they would stop telling me to walk lol. It just puts me in pain

  • When you said no, I started crying. I’m 38 weeks and I’m so over it. I feel like I can’t do this anymore (I know my body is made for this blah blah blahbut I’m miserable ok? I hate this.)
