So you can do have a walk to increase the labor.
Another way to induce labor in a natural way is by sexual intercourse. This happens due to orgasms which a woman feels during the process. The body discharges some hormones which help in childbirth. These hormones which are known as Prostaglandins motivate labor by developing the cervix. This hormone develops and softens up the cervix and help in inducing the labor.
Women body releases a hormone called Oxytocin. This hormone helps in strengthening up the intensity of contractions. This way the hormones which are released during sexual intercourse help in inducing the labor.
