You shouldn't even try it at 34 weeks, the baby isn't fully developed yet.
why are you trying to start labour?

Wow that's really dangerous! Risk of infection, not knowing how to do it properly etc and I agree with micro monkey, baby's not classed as full term till 37 weeks. your gf should talk to her midwife if there's a particular reason why she feels she doesn't want to carry much longer, but the longer baby bakes the better. I went to an interview at a neonatal unit today n the early babies were so tiny.....I'm at risk of prem birth so I'm doin everything I can to keep it in as long as poss! Good luck, your baby will b with u soon! but if she's havin probs just get her to call mw for help or advice
