  • She will poop over the moon and may not even start labor at all.

  • it will cause her to poop a lot. if she does start labor, she will poop alot while in labor. I imagine the combo wont be fun

  • Ingesting Castor oil is a way of inducing labor. HOWEVER, it is also a rather effective laxative!! Since it's mild, if your body isn't ready to give birth it won't. BUT, there is the increased risk of fetal distress due to dehydration via diarrhea.

    When the baby is READY to be born, he/she will!!!

  • She'll just get the shits. Tell her that the baby doesn't expire and it will come when it's ready.

  • She'll have diarrhea. She may vomit. It more than likely WONT bring on labor.

  • She'll cramp her belly and poop herself. She shouldn't have done that. It does NOT speed up the birth.

  • Poor girl will learn the hard way that's a miserable choice. Tell her to stay hydrated.
