As the predicted labor date is quickly approaching, womenfind it more difficult than ever to carry the baby inside of them. They arenervous and easily irritated and really just want to have the baby delivered assoon as possible. Luckily, there are ways for them to speed up the labor.

Spicy food

Spicy food is pretty famous for being able to induce labor.But in reality, this is not really the most reliable way of accomplishing thegoal of going into labor. The idea that spicy food has the ability to inducelabor follows the kind of logic that pretty much works like this – spicy foodincreases the processes in the stomach and works as a sort of a stimulant init. So therefore, it could have the same effect on the uterus, which wouldprovoke the contractions in it. However, while it’s true that this does worksometimes, the number of times that it doesn’t work is pretty much equal. Notto mention that there is the possibility that the only thing spicy food willstimulate is nausea.

Twisting the nipples

What twisting the nipples can do is make the hormone calledoxytocin be released into the body. This hormone is relevant for the inductionof labor because one of its effects is to soften the cervix which is likely toresult in the commencement of the labor process. It might be important tomention that the nipple twisting should be as tender as it can be, for beingrougher will not help the release of the hormone in any way.

Sexual activity

Another popular way of inducing labor is through sexualintercourse. The goal of this kind of approach is the same as the one from theprevious trick, and that is to soften the cervix. This is achieved throughsexual intercourse thanks to the release of the semen whose content is able tohave such an effect on the cervix.

Taking a walk

Sometimes taking a long walk or sitting in a vehicle that’sdriving on a very bumpy road will stimulate the contractions and start thelabor. This is not always the case, but it does happen from time to time.

Consumption of raspberry leaf tea

Unlike the methods such as sexual intercourse and eatingspicy food, that are very well-known as the ways to induce labor, not manypeople have heard of the method that involves simply drinking raspberry leaftea. However, this method is pretty much one of the most effective methods togo into labor on purpose. The effects of this tea reach the uterus directly,increasing the number and the intensity of the contractions, which are bound toclimax in the process of labor.
