By the time the third trimester rolls around, there is no shortage of questions and Google searches about how to induce labor. Between nipple stimulation, exercise, and even getting frisky between the sheets, women and experts alike have sussed out the methods that work best. But when it comes to the foods that help move a baby along, have you considered taking a look at your big kid trick-or-treating stash (or breaking into your kid's reserve)? After all, where there's a Halloween candy bucket to induce labor, there's a full-term pregnant woman hoping it holds the magic key to coaxing along contractions. (If all the walking around the neighborhood didn't do it already.)
Of course, all of this is circumstantial, but in a world where your options are acupuncture, various oils and teas, or getting hot and heavy, why not go for the angle that involves sitting on the couch and indulging in a bucket of candy? Even if it doesn't lead to your little one's arrival, you can busy your thoughts with the task of licking your fingers clean or picking licorice from your teeth. And, heck, if it works, then you sure will have an interesting story to share about how your favorite candy helped bring your little one into the world.
