See what I did up there? “Labour”? I’m getting this Canadian spelling thing DOWN!!!
A while back I was, at a woman’s request, going through non medical induction methods. Near the top of the list was, “Have you tried fooling around?”
It’s not an evidence based suggestion, but hey, it’s fun, and besides, the couple is cut off for six weeks after the baby comes. Theoretically, anyway.
She waved me off and said, “Oh, we’re on it. For the past few weeks, in fact. We call it ‘basting the turkey'”.
