How fast/long do you have to walk to induce labor?
Assuming that you can actually put yourself into labor by walking (and that it's not an old wives tale), how vigorous a walk do you need to take to do it? I have walked my dogs 30 min to 1 hour every day during my pregnancy, so I'm thinking that I'm going to need to speed walk really far to have any chance of stimulating labor.
Does anyone know what kind of a walk you need to take?
I've been walking and walking and walking all weekend to help speed up labor and haven't gotten anywhere yet. It makes the contractions come hard and fast for a while and then they slow down again. Good luck!!
I walked 5/6 miles quite briskly when i was 39+4 in my previous pregnancy and had my little boy that night
I didn't actually do it as a way to get LO out though, i just got fed up of sitting around being bored...but will be giving it a go this time when im around same time!
