QMy last baby was late and I really want to avoid having another induction. Is there anything I can attempt to get my next to arrive on time?
AMidwife Megan Baker says: Try to relax, keep an open mind and let nature take over; some babies refuse to arrive on time, despite your best efforts. Eat well and rest when you can. A daily swim or walk is also a good idea, but not always realistic with another young bub in tow. Acupuncture is worth trying once your due date has passed, and regular sex can stimulate labour due to the prostaglandin hormones in semen.
