DS arrived right on his due date and I am hopinh like crazy this one decides to do something similar.
What are your thoughts on acupuncture or reflexology to try and assist inducing labour??
Any success stories?

I'm pretty sure the acupressure DH did on some points on my feet kick started labour for me. I felt a few twinges while he was doing it (hadn't felt anything up until then). It was in the evening, labour started early the next morning, went in to hospital late that night and DS was born in the early hours of the morning.
We you tubed what points to use.
Of course it could have been a huge coincidence but I definitely think it helped.
A friend of mine had acupuncture and delivered the next day, she was very overdue and was going to be induced very soon.
