What are some ways to induce labor?

Lots of ways

Labor
Pitocin is a medication that mimics a hormone in your body to start contractions. Cervidil and Cytotec are prostaglandins that soften the cervix and may start some contractions that are used when your cervix is less open. Some doctors use a catheter that manually opens the cervix a little as well. It depends on why you are being induced and how your cervix is to start.

once considered full term in pregnancy, can i try to make myself go info labor? like natural ways. i.e the over the counter tea that is said to help induce labor

There are ways

Labor
I've seen the ads for the OTC, too. It's not clear what the ingredients are or if they've been studied. However, several physical methods exist to naturally stimulate prostaglandin release at term. Intercourse, orgasm, and nipple stimulation can all help in inducing labor. Your doctor can "strip your membranes" (stretch your cervix) in the office. Enemas and lots of other remedies are useless.

what is done for a cervical ripening to induce labor?

Apply medication

Oxytocin
The most common way to induce changes supporting progression of labor is to apply some chemicals that stimulate the opening of the cervix (dilatation) called prostaglandins. in addition, such things as nipple stimulation can release one's natural hormone, oxytocin, which can also stimulate labor naturally.
