I been reading about different ways to induce labor and one way that keeps coming up is drinking castor oil and I was just wondering anyones opinions on this idea. I did try to take some yesterday, but nothing happened. Has it worked for you? Do you recommend it? Is there anything else u would recommend to help this pregnancy go by quicker? I have also tried the sex thing and walking is not an option (way too tired and hot!)Answer Question

Castor oil takes LARGE doses to "work" for labor, however the risks out weigh the benefits. It can cause both you AND baby diarrhea, if the baby should pass meconium in the womb, it can be breathed in and cause MAJOR complections, such as breathing problems, or even death. Its not really worth it. Primrose oil, 8 tablets on your cervix I heard from MANY woman it works great, and is safe, that combined with walking, or bouncing on a birthing ball should do wonders! Good luck, and stay away from the Castor oil!
