Prune juice? I wouldn't try it unless you want severe diarrhea during labor..  That is all it's going to do. Things like this don't work unless you're already proceeding into labor anyway.

What she said.  Not going to work.  Neither is ipecac syrup or Chinese food.

It happens when your body is read, and not one second before.  I'm sorry hon.  I remember how badly that sucked, waiting and just wanting "go time!".  Just walk all you can, and get plenty of rest and sleep.

Still if your body isn't going into labor by itself, nothing is going to help it along.

My SIL tried castor oil WHILE she was in labor the only thing she got was bad diarrhea. Yea, not something you really want while giving birth.


Walking is the best thing you can do and sex, LOTS OF IT!

Ipecac syrup? Who uses that? That shit is not only dangerous, it's deadly. I can't believe anyone would put that in a post for preggos to read and think it's worth trying. Yikes.
And the OP already knows that black cohosh can rip apart your uterus.
Case, I think it will be funny for you to suck down some prune juice and, if you avoid barfing your guts out, calling me tomorrow unable to leave the bathroom!!!!!

Just have that kid already so you don't make my tarot a liar! Yeah, I did it.
