My sister is 9 months pregnant and the baby is well past the due date is there anything she can do to induce labour?

Not really.: There is really nothing she can do to get things started. Some of the thing people may suggest, like earring spicy foods, will only make her miserable. Walking will not help. Labor starts usually when the baby is ready. She can talk to her OB about including labor if her cervix is favorable.
