Natural Induction Methods – I include this link because so many women ask about natural induction methods. Induction is induction whether natural or medical.  Do not use any of these without the OK of your care provider and the knowledge that if you force labor on a body and baby that aren’t ready, it may lead to complications and interventions.  After you read this list – read this too.
