Hello Hollie. I had a sweep with my 3rd baby, what happens is you have it done at the hospital or clinic. The midwife will get you to lay on the bed, you bend your knees outwards, she will then use two fingers to scrap at the top of your cervix. (yes it is uncomfortable ) but it only takes a few seconds. You might get slight bleeding afterwards and you might get a show which is when the plug of mucus comes away. It can bring on your contractions, although it didnt work for me i went another week before my contrations started but then all four of mine were 10 days late. Good luck with the birth xx My youngest is 6 months now.
