I am 40 weeks and 4 days pregnant. My midwife has offered me this drug free way of inducing my labour but i am not sure. I walk every night and i am going to try a hot bath and s_x this evening. I wondered if anyone could give me any feedback on the sweeping of the membranes process and any other remedies PLEASE

I think you are meaning stripping of the membranes. Check on the earlier posts and it will tell you what it is all about. My doctor told me today they are going to start doing this to me at 38 weeks. I had it done with my daughter at 41 weeks.

Hi Rebecca, I had it done it didnt work for me, but it seems to work for half the people its done on (based on other posts) It doesnt really hurt, feels like an exam with a tiny bit of pressure. Its worth a shot! Good luck.

I had my membranes sc___ped with my last pregnancy at 38 weeks and my water broke early the next morning. it is just the dr. pretty much scrathching the outside of your water bag. i say go for it. good luck.
