6 Exercises to Induce Labor Naturally

April 27, 2016

One of the most common questions that I hear heavily pregnant ladies ask is “How can I put myself into labor or induce labor?”

Well, sweetheart. I hate to break it to ya, but there’s no physical way to really “put” yourself into labor unless you get induced by a doctor. You can bounce on a ball all day, eat all the pineapple you want, or have sex five times a day, but at the end of the day, baby will come when she or he is ready to come.

Now, with that being said, you CAN encourage labor to be shorter-and to start on time. These 6 moves below are notorious for helping pregnant ladies go into labor on or near their due dates (sometimes a week before!) instead of waiting to be induced medically when they hit the 41 or 42 week mark. Who REALLY wants to be overdue right?

These exercises will help to speed up dilation , effacement and the process of labor , helps relieve back , hip and pelvic pain. Not only that, these moves help to open and create space in the pelvis , allowing your baby to drop down or can potentially help to turn a breech baby weeks before delivery.

You can get your own fitness ball for cheap here.  I highly recommend one for everyone as they are amazing for pregnancy and beyond!

Give it a try and let me know which one is your favorite!
