stretch and sweep work for you?

Hi mums, just g/c from pregnancy. I've been offered a stretch and sweep but wondering if they really work. Did you have one and did it work? If so how soon after? Thanks

I had one at 39+4 and had my baby girl within 48 hours.
It's not always a question of whether they work or not - sometimes they just can't be performed if your cervix isn't soft & open enough. If I'm offered one at a similar stage this time round (and the mw is able to perform it) I'll definitely have it.

i had one on 1st april at lunchtime and had pippa the next day at 2.28pm, so worked for me, but pippa was going to come out anyway as was going for induction the day i had her

My cervix was closed and posterior although soft and so mine couldnt be performed Properly she tried but it was still in same state 6 days later when we went to discuss my induction date. I ended up being induced that day instead as my bp was high
