    I have heard a few people who swear by brown sugar in hot water. Apparently 4 heaped table spoons of brown sugar in a half cup of boiled (and left to cool a little) water. I don't know if it does work but I thought it sounded bizarre! :?

    I know it sounds strange, I heard about it the other day. A couple of people really swear by it though! Let me know if it works as I have decided I want my baby out next week :rotfl:

    Don't know of any that actually work. I had to be induced at 40 + 9.

    The things I tried were Nookie, nipple stimulation, reflexology, hand massage and exercise. Nothing worked for me but they might have worked for others. xxx
