    Nothing will start labor, some things may help but unless you're about to go into labor on your own, everything else is just luck.

    I've tried walking, eating spicy food, red raspberry leaf tea, evening primrose oil, doing squats, taking a shower, having sex and a few others.  So there are things that will help with the effacing and dilation but nothing itself that will start labor.  I actually have a hub about old wives tales on inducing labor that you should check out.
