Many women are now looking for natural ways to induce labor due to negative experiences they are hearing about (or have experienced) with medical induction. If you have ever had to induce labor using Pitocin or a cervical ripening agent, you understand how unpleasant the experience is (that’s putting it mildly).  Most women end up opting for pain medication because the contractions become stronger and closer together, and can even cause additional complications to baby and or the laboring mom.

We’ve all heard some pretty funny things that seemingly worked for someone, so they recommend it – unfortunately some of those suggestions, just aren’t safe and most are ineffective.  Evidence Based Birth® has posted six videos on the evidence of some of these suggestions and explains the risks and the benefits. Watch these brief videos and read the EVIDENCE on how it can potentially help you avoid the dreaded medical interventions.
