Can alcohol induce labor?

Do winecoolers induce labor? My aunt told me that having one mixed winecooler with sprite can help induce labor but not to have anymore than that.

  • Well wine is safe and I've heard that a winecooler every once in a while isn't the end of the world either.

    I was just curious as to if it really had any effect on labor, but thanks for being rude.

  • I have never heard of that inducing labor....it sounds bogus to me. Even if it doesn't induce labor though, at least it tastes good I guess. lol

  • I would say NO, because they still don't know how much alcohol can cause fetal alcohol syndrome. I wouldn't chance it.

  • No, if you do go into labor and you have had a winecooler then the hospital wont be able to give you the painkillers that you will want. They cant mix alcohol and drugs. Try sex to induce labor sometimes that works and its safe.
