Is it helpful to have sex during this time to help induce labor or help with dialiation??

I guess I'm just concerned that the OP is looking to induce labour at 37 weeks.

If baby isn't ready, having sex won't induce it at all. It's just quite uncomfortable though.

Why would you want to induce labour at 37 weeks? Your baby isn't all cooked yet.....Full term is between 38-42 weeks. Just wait until baby is ready. Sex won't be HARMFUL, if that's what you are asking - if you are ready for labour you are ready. BUT don't just do it to induce your baby at this point.

Some say it can and some say it doesn't.
It doesn't hurt the baby so if you want to have sex them go for it. If you orgasm it can help get things moving so make sure he is looking out for you and not just satisfying himself.
