She is going to do a stretch and sweep. How affective is this?

Hi Alex, Well today is my due date and it doesnt look like bubs wants to see the world yet. I see my midwife on Wednesday and she is going to do a stretch and sweep. How affective is this and how soon will i go into labor. This is my 3rd baby will that make any differents. Bubs head is engaged so well. Thanks Danielle

Answer: Hi Danielle, Thank you for your enquiry. Not many babies are born on their due date, most are born in the week before or the week after. If you have had a baby before the stretch may help you to go into labour. Best wishes, Alex
