    Here's an interesting article on the topic:

    In a study carried out in Sydney, Australia, 192 first-time mums were given at random either a 1.2g raspberry leaf tablet or a placebo twice a day from 32 weeks of pregnancy. The herb had no harmful effects on mother or baby, and those women who had taken raspberry leaf tablets were found to have a shorter second stage of labour and a lower rate of forceps delivery (19.3% versus 30.4%). However, far more research is needed to confirm these results.

    stimulating the nipple ( as vulgar as it sound) also help to bring on labour as it release the same type of chemical call oxytocin( the same as hospitals give to you) to induce labour.

    As all might know, sex too. but i rather stay off that till after birth. lol:)
