A cervical sweep will help avoid induction in 1: 8 ladies by releasing prostaglandin hormones and helping to soften and ripen the cervix (neck of the womb) for labour.
I will provide a full antenatal check, and listen to baby’s heartbeat, chat about your pregnancy and your birth preferences and offer strategies to keep you relaxed and to keep your oxytocin hormone flowing. I will demonstrate colostrum harvesting to stimulate oxytocin and help prepare your cervix for labour.
I will provide advice on practical tips and mindset preparation for labour, I will demonstrate key acupressure points to help your body to prepare for labour. I will also provide a gentle sweep of the cervix to stimulate hormones which may activate labour. This involves a gentle vaginal examination and assessment of the Bishop score to inform you whether your body has started to gear up for labour or not.
