Exercises to Induce Labour

Can Exercise Help Start Labour?
I am constantly asked if there are any exercises I can do to help start labour? This question is often from mums who are in the last couple of weeks during their pregnancies or who are overdue.
I created this exercise circuit based on 15 years experience and it works! I have used exercises that relax the hip muscles encouraging baby to descend deeper into the pelvis.
If your baby is not in optimal fetal position then avoid deep squats and follow my Turn Your Baby program

Do the circuit 4-5 times a week after a 10-15minute walk. If walking is uncomfortable or painful then avoid.
Good Luck and let me know how you go with the exercises. Make sure you visit my website for your 12 week Post Pregnancy Exercise and Health program
