Foley bulb induction — The Bump

Foley bulb induction

Hi everyone, I was wondering about a foley bulb induction. I will be 40 weeks on the 9th and my doctor won't let me go past 41 weeks. As of my appt last week I am still closed, thick, and high. So I was wondering if I have to get induced would a foley be my best bet and do you have to be dilated to get it placed in? Oh and I am trying for a vbac.

  • I hope you show signs of imminent labor soon. In the meantime, get some support from the hubs for walking, exercising, squatting  etc. Also try the acupuncture and acupressure tricks.  If all else fails I'd try the bulb.
  • I don't believe there is much risk to a VBAC (compared to a non-vbac) using a bulb. So if I HAD to, I'd go with that. But there are TONS of things you can try before that.
