I am currently 39w3days. My last Dr.s appt was 3-6-07 at that time I was not dialated. I was wondering if anyone knows if you have to be dialated before the Dr. can strip the membranes? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

As far as I know tyou don't have to be dialated. My friends sister had her's done 2 weeks ago. It didn't help, but who knows? I hope you have your baby soon! Good Luck!

I thought you had to be dilated at least a bit...they need to get their finger up into your cervix to sweep between the cervix and bag of waters....if you are not dilated enough, there is no room for them to get in there.

I agree with Tammy. They could not strip my membran cause I was closed up like a clam!
