It worked both times for us! Two births bang on term.. He just has to be really really gentle to avoid discomfort. Spooning is cuddliest.. More fun than stair walking ;)

You can induce by doing simple exercises like Pelvic Rocks, Leaning, Squatting, Walking and Kegal Exercises. There are some myths like eating pine apple and raspberry leaf tea can induce labor.
