  • there are side affects like dehydration for you and possible risk of the baby going poop in the uterus which if the baby breathes that in on the first breathe it can cause breathing problems .

    it does not always work either everyone i have heard stories from it didnt work for them .
    you can probably find it at drug stores but you should research before doing it just google castor oil to induce labor .

  • oh geez, please dont do the castor oil to induce! it causes intense cramping and diarrhea. Do you really want to give birth by pooping out your baby? Or possibly making a mess on doctor?

  • I did the same thing and I drank a whole glass with orange juice..i actually went into labor that day ..on the down side..i had placenta rupture and thought that it could been the reason y. But the real reason was i was 3 weeks late. I think the oil helped but i would not do it. I had horrible cramps..I mean HORRIBLE. So, instead try stimulating your nipples or sex. That or walk around your neighbor hood if u can and drink alot of water.

  • I have to agree with pp's. DON'T DO IT! It does some nasty things, but doesn't put you into labor.
