I am 38 weeks and my doctor examined me and said that he ''stripped'' my membranes. Will this help bring on labour within 24-36 hours?

  I am 38 weeks and my doctor examined me and said that he ''stripped'' my membranes. Will this help bring on labour within 24-36 hours?

''Stripping'' the membranes (otherwise known as sweeping the membranes) means that your doctor gently separated the membranes from around the cervix when he examined you vaginally. It is a safe and reasonably effective way of getting you to go into labour naturally, but does not always work. It is best performed after 40 weeks, when the cervix is already dilated to 1 or 2 centimetres but you''re not in labour yet.
