  • I'm sorry, i shouldn't have said that so rudely, it's just that it's so dangerous to try to induce labor on your own...and I always see women looking for ways to do it.

  • According to the Labor and Delivery nurses I saw all the self-inducing methods only work if you're ready to go into labor anyway, otherwise they just cause a lot of false labors - which can be painful, sickening, and annoying.

  • unless you are overdue I would not try this unless it is doctor recomended. babies usually come on their own. my mom did the castor oil thing and all it did was clean out her bowels. Be patient .

  • I did alot of walking, my husband and I were active...frequently...(your orgsams could jump start contractions), sorry don't mean to be graphic...and also used a yoga ball to rotate my pelvis back and forth to help the baby decend in the birth canal (this also helps in active labor)...if all else fails...wait on the lady herself, mother nature knows best...Good luck and congrats...
