I got one done on my due date in the morning and started having contractions an hour later. Was in active labour that night and gave birth early hours the next day. The midwife said it works for some mummas but not for all.
Sorry mommies but what’s a sweep ? 😬🙈
Guys I had my sweep this morning and little man not coming just yet , not dilated enough for her to sweep properly , next one is Wednesday :) fingers crossed for that one ay , she did tickle up there to try get stuff started and had a few cramps and light bleeding but no mucus or water break yet
It might but it might not 😅 I had one with my first and it did nothing at all. I had three with my second and lost my plug after the first, second was useless and then the third put me in labour. Third sweep was at 3ish, contractions started at 6 and he was here by 10:30!
Fingers crossed for you. I had three and they did nothing
My stubborn little boy not showing any time soon , haven’t dilated yet got another sweep Wednesday so fingers crossed for that one x
It could do! I had to have three in the end in a space of a week The third one was the best sweep- they gave me gas and air under 24hrs I was in labour. But my first I lost my mucus plug. Fingers crossed for you x
@Angelica a midwife will use her fingers to separate the membrane sac from your cervix which releases hormones that can kick start labour, depends on how soft and dilated your cervix is and how close to your due date you are. Usually offered from 39 weeks + and if you are overdue before induction.
