Answer: This can happen weeks or hours before labour begins, and there is no way of knowing how long this will process take. As the cervix begins to change, some of the mucus plug may come away.
The mucus plug is the jelly-like substance that seals or plugs the cervix – neck of the womb - during pregnancy. It’s a natural protective barrier preventing bacteria from entering your uterus. One of the common signs of labor is loosing your mucus plug.
This can happen a few weeks or days before labor starts. Some women don’t notice loosing it at all, especially if they’ve experienced a heavy mucus discharge throughout pregnancy. Some women carry on loosing the mucus plug throughout labor; often there is increased mucous discharge just before the birth.
The color of your mucus plug can vary between clear, through white, gray, brownish or pink…or clear with pink stripes of blood. This is due to tiny blood vessels breaking where the amniotic membranes are being separated from the wall of the womb. All very normal.

Answer: You can follow these to induce labour naturally.
Walking - The bumping up and down of walking can help the baby move into the birth canal. In fact, this is one of the few ways that most doctors agree on for starting labor. If walking doesn't work, try walking up and down stairs. Lifting your legs higher as you step can help push the baby downward.
Pineapple - Best taken fresh and raw. Pineapples contain the enzyme bromeliad, which can soften your cervix and and bring on labor. It can also stimulate your stomach, which could also help get some contractions going. Statistically speaking, the chemicals in pineapple that are said to start labor aren't very high. It would take a lot of pineapple to get labor going.
Sperm - If you feel up to sex, intercourse can work to get labor started. Sperm contains natural prostaglandins that release oxytocin to help soften and dilate the cervix.
Spicy food - A very well-known labor starter! The reason it works may be because of the upset it causes to the digestive system, which then upsets the uterus. Not highly recommended
Squats - Doing a few of these each day often helps to move the baby down and into position. Squats use gravity to push the baby downwards, thereby jumpstarting your birth naturally.
Stretch and sweep of membranes - Your doctor will perform this simple procedure. A finger is inserted into the cervix and a gentle 'sweep' of the finger slightly separates the uterus wall and amniotic sac, sometimes leading to labor within hours or days. Some women say it's an easy, painless procedure, others find it very painful
