I'm due in about three weeks and my doctor said in a week or two if I'm not feeling any braxton hicks or other contractions he might manually stretch/massage my cervix to speed things along. I was about a finger tip dilated last week he said.
Has anyone else ever heard of this? I said I do not want to be induced and i don't want pitocin. He said he doesn't use pitocin unless it's the only alternative to a c-section, but he said if I'm over a week or two late he wants to induce.
I want to go a natural-ish route, so does this seem like an acceptable way to speed up labor with out drugs?
