Need to ripen/soften my cervix!

I'm 39+3 and the doctor I saw today wants to induce me next week if my cervix doesn't move down or soften by then. I know I can say no to induction but I don't really have a set doctor (the one I was seeing until about 30 weeks also had a baby and is on leave 😊) so I end up with whoever is available at the office and they all have different medical opinions and it gets hard repeating my birth plan over and over with every doctor I see and their office is VERY busy. The doctor today tried to do a membrane sweep but my cervix is still up really high so she couldn't really get that far up/around there lol ANYWAYS, what are some natural methods to ripen your cervix that worked for you?!
