How effective?


Has anyone had their membranes stripped? If so, did it work for you and how long after did you go into labor?

They said if it's going to work it'll work within 48 hours I'm sure? I had it done with my son at 1 day overdue, I then had sex the following day and propped a pillow under my bum and contractions started right away.. I guess there's no way to know if it was that or the sex or just my body ready for labour anyway. I had it with my last pregnancy a few days overdue as well and nothing at all happened x

I had it done for all 3 babies
1st had it done at 40+1, born 40+3
2nd had it done at 40+3 born at 41weeks
3rd had it done at 40+4 born at 40+6
Not sure if it was that that made me go into labour or if I would've anyway?!?

Thanks ladies. Love to hear more stories! I also had it done with my 2nd son and had my bloody show but nothing else for a couple days. I have only read a couple stories about women going that day, so was curious if thats the norm.

I know of a few women personally who have had it done and went into labour that day as well. I think it probably depends how favorable you are for it too when the time comes. I have a really good midwife this time around and she's willing to give me one at 39+4, then another a few days overdue. My midwifes in the past wouldn't even consider it before 40+1!

I had it done with my second and third, but my cervix was still super high and hard to reach. Never worked for me, I always go about a week late though!
