  • you can go to NY and eat this famous salad that people order just to induce labor. I saw it on The Doctors.

  • Nothing will induce your labor, besides modern medicine. The theory is that really citrus-y or spicy foods will give you indigestion which could cause contractions, it's just a theory. I eat both and have never had indigestion or contractions from it.

    Your body will go into labor when ready, and not before then. Even a medical induction wont work if your baby/body aren't ready.

  • Eat a carrot after you have inserted in your vagina, but make sure the carrot has a condom on. You do want to be safe right.
