Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Real Advice -

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.
