Home Induction Methods On How To Induce Labour

Breast Stimulation

If you stroke and massage your nipples and breasts or if you allow your partner sucks at your nipples, it will stimulate the release of oxytocin hormone in your body and over a period of time, it can cause labor to start.

Two weeks before your due date, you can take a mug of warm water and dip cotton towels in it and apply them on the front of the breasts covering your nipples and areola. Do this for 5-6 times each in the morning, afternoon, evening, and at night.    

At 39th week of pregnancy, start rubbing both your nipples gently between your fingertips for an hour or so for three times a day.


If your delivery is overdue, it is a good idea to have an intercourse. Seminal fluid is rich in prostaglandin hormones which are known to ripen the cervix and stimulate labour contractions. 

When your doctor suggests you of inducing labour, talk to your doctor about the possible risks and benefits for both you and your baby, such as the risk of low birth weight and the risk of c-section.

You need to be sure that the benefits of inducing labour outweigh the risks of labor and the risks of continuing your pregnancy.
