Membrane sweeping can be performed at home or in an antenatal clinic, and there is no reason why you cannot have a home birth after it has been carried out.
However, it is not as effective at inducing labour as other methods.
Check that any recommendations for induction are based on the most accurate assessment of your due date, not on LMP dating.
Even if you are genuinely post-dates, your chances of going into labour naturally increase with every day which passes: It is undeniable that the rate of stillbirths and neonatal deaths does rise as pregnancy becomes more and more prolonged.
It is up to you to make the decision which is right for your family.
Many women also find contractions significantly more painful after drug induction and an epidural may be needed.
There are also various Do-It-Yourself methods of inducing labour which you can try at home.
Therefore if scan information is available, it is preferable to use this for dating a pregnancy (presuming it was carried out during the first half of pregnancy, when dating is most accurate)."  Ultrasound scans for dating are pretty accurate in the first trimester, but get less and less accurate as time goes on.
Sometimes a scan will suggest that your due date is actually later than the LMP date, but the revised date may not have been entered on your notes as your 'new' due date.
