I'm just curious if any of you have tried to induce labor at home, and how did you do it?

I've heard some off the wall suggestions..lol

 No way.  And I have no doubts the ways you have heard are nothing but old wives tales (ingesting laxatives to "get things started) also can cause Meconium aspiration syndrome

 Dont do anything.... I listened to a mid-wife and took Castor oil....Almost caused the death of my child....At home induction is not a safe thing....why induce if your body inst ready?

To clarify- No, I won't induce. I've just been hearing a lot about it lately.

And yes, I know about meconium aspiration. I had it when I was born and it's caused a lot of long term health issues.

The ONLY 'induction' technique I'd use would be walking...and not for the sake of induction, but to be healthy.

 Walking and water....there you go...

I was a few days over with one of my 5. I went to a Mexican restaurant and ate a big bowl of beans and the hottest hot sauce I could stand.  Five hours later I had to go to the bathroom big time and had nasty horrible gas.  YES, I went into labor.  I farted my way through that delivery.  Never again.  I HATE beans.

Coincidence???

They're all old wives' tales. The only thing my doctor recommended was sex.
