im being offered this in a couple of days if my little one doesnt want to arrive by herself...
ive heard nothing but negative feedback... so wondering if this has actually worked for anyone first time???

I had an lo who wasn't engaged, my cervix was high and quite hard, but the mw did her best. Had my sweep at 11.30am, waters broke at 7.30pm and my baby was born at 6.03am.
So I have nothing but good things to say about sweeps, as even though the mw thought it would do no good, it kick started my labour!

Didn't work first time but I think it deffinately helped me go into labour instead of being induced.

didnt work with my 1st 2 but with max it did, had sweep at 3pm and started at 9pm that night! was 10days late mind!

i have a sweep booked at 9.40 am next mon when i will be 40+4.
do you think that is too early to have a sweep? ive had a good pregnancy so no problems.
my hub will be away til 10pm that day so i dont want to go into labour without him being there!!
do you think i should delay the sweep til after 41 wks??
grateful for any advice

Definitely try it. Can't hurt at the end of the day!

I had a sweep with my second little one I was 39+6 so 40+4 isn't to early. I had mine that early as I had been in mild labour for 11 weeks and MW said she thought it was time to give me a little bit of help ( abit too late in my eyes) but she sweeped at about 10am and I was in full labour by 7pm gave birth at 11.40pm
so no bad words about sweeps

Life after miscarriage
Just wondering how people coped after having their miscarriage. Did you take anytime off work? If so how long? I've been back in work for 4 weeks but wondering if I came back too soon? I work in a pre-school so surrounded by children. One of the Mums is pregnant and due the same time I was which really upset me. Feel like…
