I definitely concur on cervical massage. For a woman they would say soak in a warm bath, drink apple juice out of a wine glass, have sex, all sorts of things as @Latestarter pointed out earlier. Cervical massage is the best option here. Pit or oxytocin are both a tough call without the vet there, plus you may not even have any. Given Gardenia's history, I think it is no surprise that she is not responding properly to labor. With so much prayerful intervention on her (and your) behalf, I am hopeful for a good outcome. Please let us know how things are going when you get a chance. We are all waiting anxiously. God bless you, @Sweetened, and your tender concern for sweet Gardenia.
