It is advised by my doctor to try and induce labor naturally before 40 weeks for medical reasons, that's why I asked.

I am trying for a vbac so my doctor will NOT medically induce me. My first son was 10 lbs at 39 weeks and this baby is measuring to be larger. So for a successful vbac she said the least risks would be if my body goes into spontaneous labor at 38/39 weeks vs going to 40 weeks and later. If I get to 40 weeks she will book me in for another csection. She advised me to try certain natural methods including acupuncture to help prepare my body for labor. She said this has sometimes been proven to help you go into labor a few days early and it is also proven to help labor progress and not stall. If you are trying for a vbac, she said we want to avoid labor stalling. I shouldn't have to explain this. If you don't agree with my question, then move along. There is no need to be rude or say "it doesn't make sense"This was my first time ever asking a question on a community board. I am asking a question after speaking with my doctor. I was just looking for some experiences real moms may have had. What isn't helpful is all of the negative comments I have received. If you don't have anything helpful to say then feel free to not say anything at all. Not one person commented with any experience they have had with acupuncture during pregnancy for labor prep/induc. That is all I was looking for.

Also, your provider is not VBAC supportive, they are mildly tolerant at best.
