Although I still believe that maternity acupressure is the best way to induce labor naturally, diet and exercises do also work.
There many ways by which you can learn how to induce labor yourself. Frequently used methods are diet and exercise.
When it comes to the food you eat, there are certain foods that will help in keeping the cervix in tone, so that the period of labor is shorter and delivery much easier and less painful. One such food to add to your diet is raspberry leaf tea. Some foods contain enzymes that may elicit mild uterine contractions. The most notable are tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and kiwi.
Many women have used low impact exercises to “coax” the baby down into the cervix (with the help of gravity). One way to do this is by walking while swaying your hips side to side. Other exercises, such as pedaling on a stationary bike or a light hike, help to induce contractions. In some cases, women can jolt their baby into labor by asking their spouses to drive them over bumpy roads.
