I’m not quite ready for Baby Girl to come, but I’m getting pretty close! I have a list of things I need to do, and once everything is done on my list, she can come out. I’ve started reading about ways to induce labor, and the latest thing I have heard is pineapple.
Apparently pineapples contain enzymes that causes mild contractions. They have an enzyme called bromelain that may soften the cervix. Kiwi, mango and papaya also have this enzyme. (http://www.natural-pregnancy-midwife.com/ways-to-induce-labor.html)
My friend told me the pineapple needs to be very ripe, and you need to eat the whole thing in one day. She did this, and her baby was born that week! Google has also told me that pineapple is very effective when trying to kick start labor.
In about a week and a half I plan on going completely tropical. Pineapple, kiwi and mango everyday!
Has anyone else had any luck with pineapple inducing labor?
