I was told that my amniotic fluids where low and i'm a full term pregnancy should I be worried? I am also not dilating what should  I do.

Maybe: It depends on the number. If your fluid is low enough, your OB will probably consider an induction. If it's borderline and the rest of the testing is ok, you can go a little while longer. While it's preferable for you to start dilating on your own, there are several reliable ripening agents that can help. Talk to your OB and voice your concerns. Keep monitoring your baby's movements. ...Read more

3 CM dialated, 50% defaced and full term pregnancy.. How can labor be safely induced at home?

Intercourse: Hi! three centimeters is great! the best way to safely induce or encourage maybe is a better word labor at home is intercourse. The semen contains prostaglandins in small amounts. Prostaglandins are what providers use to induce labor in some cases. Put your baby-daddy to work! if your water breaks though, then stop and call your provider. Good luck! dr brown. ...Read more
