If you want to dilate your cervix faster, then you need two things: first, you need
a soft cervix, because otherwise, your cervix will not be able to dilate once labor starts.
And second, your body needs the right kind of hormonal balance, because your hormones
are the key to get contractions going.
Without contractions, your body cannot go into labor and so your cervix won’t be able
So in this video, we provide you with a list of completely natural tools that you can apply
in the comfort of your own home.
Their purpose is to help you with both, your cervical softening as well as with the right
In fact, we call them “tools for labor preparation”, because they can help the body get ready for
Yes and applying them can be enough for you to go into labor completely naturally and
to even do it fast as many of my clients have reported back to me.
However, we will also discuss two more natural tools, just in case your body still does not
go into labor by itself or if it is not going fast enough for you.
We call them “tools for labor induction”, because they can help a woman go into labor
within 72 hours and in some cases, even within 12 hours.
Coming up right after this!
We are Nathalie and Mathias and we produce videos which help you and your baby naturally

As usual when it comes to anything related to your pregnancy, please talk to your healthcare
provider first, before you try anything that we mention in this video.
With that said, let’s look into our list of tools to help you dilate faster, starting
with our labor preparation tools.
First on the list, we’ve got eating dates: eating between 60 and 80 grams is a great
way to help soften your cervix according to scientists.
Therefore, women who are eating dates in their late pregnancy are more likely to go into
labor spontaneously according to studies Why is that?
Well, remember, your cervix can only dilate, once it is soft.
And so, if you help your body soften your cervix way before your due date, it will be
able to dilate much faster eventually.
Just be careful if you suffer from diabetes, because dates contain lots of sugar.
Next on the list, we’ve got either acupuncture or acupressure.
Both tools rely on the stimulation of acupressure points in order to positively influence labor-related
functions in your body.
Yes, and just in case you think that this is all just hocus pocus.
The reality is there are tons of scientific studies about the many benefits of both
in terms of labor preparation.
And so, both, acupuncture and acupressure can work really well according to scientists
if you want to soften your cervix but also for relaxation.
Relaxation is important to help release Oxytocin which is the very hormone you wanna focus
on to get contractions going, particularly, if you are looking for ways to dilate faster
Now, it is advisable to go see a professional acupuncturist, BUT many of my clients prefer
to apply acupressure themselves at home.
Yes, and if that’s the case for you too, don’t worry, applying this stuff is really
In fact, we have not only created a pdf-guide that teaches these things.
We have also produced a video which explains in detail what you need to do.
So please bear with us: we will tell you exactly where to find these free resources at the
end of this video! Yeah!
Okay, next on the list, we’ve got exercise. Scientists have found that women who exercise
from week 38 onwards, are less likely to be medically induced at the hospital.
And so, exercise is another great tool to help your body prepare for labor and to dilate
faster. In general though, it is not recommended to do crazy workouts when you are pregnant.
Instead, going for a 30 minutes walk at least 3 times a week at a speed of 4 kilometers
per hour (which is about 2.4 miles per hour) is what you wanna do.
Alternatively, scientists have also praised the positive effects of using a birthing ball
for exercising during late pregnancy.
In fact, women who had used a birthing ball during late pregnancy, had a much better Bishop
score, which is basically a measure for how ready your cervix is for labor.
On top of that, they also had higher Oxytocin levels and severer uterine contractions.
By the way, we have plans to record a video on how to use a birthing ball.
And if we have published it already by the time when you watch this video, you should
now be able to see it somewhere at the top of your video screen!
If you cannot see a link pop up at the top of your screen, well that means we have not
yet recorded it.
Alright, so next on the list, we’ve got reflexology which is kind of an acupressure-based
Reflexology allows us to do multiple things: first of all, it allows us to work on your
pelvis to engage the baby with the intention to further soften the cervix.
Moreover, it allows us to help the body release oxytocin, by stimulating your pituitary gland
and by helping your body relax.
And finally, reflexology could even help you with first contractions by stimulating your
uterus, although these contractions will hardly ever mean the beginning of labor. Yeah! And again,
if you want to know exactly which reflexology points to massage and how to find them, please
bear with us!
You can find detailed instructions in our pdf-guide as well as in the video that I have mentioned
Alright, so next on the list, we’ve got sex.
And we only really mention sex because we do know quite a lot of men and women who do swear
by sex as a means to dilate faster.
That’s very true, actually!
However, scientists are still indifferent if it can really help you dilate faster.
Basically, there are two main reasons why sex is supposed to help you with labor.
First, semen contains prostaglandins.
These are chemicals which can help relax tissues.
Therefore, it is hoped that they help soften the cervix and even trigger uterine contractions.
The other reason is the female orgasm.
In theory, it could help a woman with contractions.
However, they are usually only just Braxton Hicks, which are fake contractions. Yes, but
one thing is for certain.
If you want to try sex to dilate faster, it needs to be unprotected vaginal sex and both
partners need to have an orgasm.
That’s all I am going to say about it.
But if you want to know more about if and what kind of sex can help induce labor, simply
check out the video that you can now see at the top of your video screen!
Okay, so those were the tools for labor preparation.
Now, if you apply them diligently, chances are that you A) go into labor naturally all
by yourself and B)
do it much faster than you would have normally done without these tools, because now your
body is ready for labor.
And since your body is ready for labor, you can now apply the tools for actual labor induction
IF you still haven’t gone into labor OR if it is not going fast enough for you.
So let’s have a look at the tools for labor induction!
Right! The first tool is nipple stimulation.
To be precise, nipple stimulation is a bit of a hybrid tool, i.e. it is a tool for both,
labor preparation AND labor induction.
In fact, if your cervix is not soft at this point, then nipple stimulation can help you
with that according to scientists from India.
However, normally, if you have prepared your body for labor, then your cervix should be
soft at this point.
And if that’s the case, nipple stimulation can help you get contractions going and even
go into labor quite fast.
In fact, according to scientists, it could happen within 72 hours.
But they do point out that it is only likely to work, if your cervix is soft
at this point.
So again, labor preparation IS important if you want to dilate faster.
Stimulating your nipples involves a combination of rubbing and tweaking your nipples with
your fingers and stimulating them with your whole palm. If that’s something you wanna
try, don’t worry, we will teach you exactly how to do it.
So please bear with us til the end of this video!
And if nipple stimulation has not helped you go into labor fast, well then there is only
one last resort which can help you with that: Castor Oil . Exactly.
A Castor Oil cocktail has helped many women go into labor in clinical studies in less
than 48 hours and in some cases even within 12 hours after the intake of Castor oil.
However, keep in mind, that Castor oil seems to work much better for women who have given
birth to at least one child in the past already! Now, according to scientists, Castor Oil seems
to be safe for the baby.
However, the reason why we still recommend it as a last resort only is because it is
basically a laxative. Right!
In fact, almost every single woman in scientific studies felt nauseas after the intake of Castor oil.
And in some cases, women had severe gastrointestinal irritations, including vomiting and diarrhea.
That's right, so do ask yourself, if this is really how you want to go into labor!
Still, if you have tried everything that we have mentioned in this video and you still
haven’t gone into labor, Castor oil seems to be the best option to dilate fast according
If that’s something you wanna try, you will find detailed instructions including how much
Castor oil you need in both, our video and pdf-guide.
So now you have two options: you can either simply download our pdf guide from our website.
And in order to do this, simply follow the link that you can find in the description
below this video!
Alternatively, you can watch the video that you can now see somewhere at the top of your
But you can also find the link to that video in the description below this video.
And we do recommend that you have a look at both resources, because the file provides
you with all the little details, while the video shows you an actual video of how to
apply the tools etc. which many have said is quite convenient . But in general, both
resources teach you a complete action plan for natural labor preparation and induction
including all the tools that we mention in this video in order to help you dilate faster.
And just that you know: what we teach in there has helped many many of Nathalie’s clients
with exactly that.
So, both, the pdf guide and the video, basically teach you how to apply the tools that we mention
in this video, for example, how to find and massage acupressure or reflexology points,
how to do nipple stimulation etc.
But most importantly, we also talk about how safe these tools are for both, yourself and
your baby as well as when to start with each tool as you approach your due date.
And just that you know: it does not matter if you are in week 37 or week 40 of your pregnancy.
You will find an action plan to dilate faster for every possible scenario.
Oh and also, we have a birthday present for your baby, you know, for when your little
one is born.

value your good-night sleep.
