it is safe to use castor oil to help induce labor my midwife told me herself to do it and two days later i had a healthy baby boy at 38 weeks he was 8 pounds 1 ounce it dosent cause any harm to the baby i did it with every pregnancy and it worked.

I've done castor oil twice with no luck. ITs worth a try... just make sure you stay hydrated. The diarreah wasn't too bad either. I wish it had worked for me, however.

Tried the castor oil, Have been having mild irregular contrations hopefully it wont be long, but im not getting my hopes up yet. Think its still going to take a while. HELP

I hope you all know that all casteroil does is emty your bowls (seriously I sh****t my brain out) so the baby will drop lower and put more pressure on the cervix and the sack which will "hopefully" cause contractions and/or make the sac.It also irritates the bowls and can also cause contractions. So any laxative will do, just that caster oil works really fast. For me it never worked until I was 3 and 4 days before due date, and I took that stuff like candy.

Ahhh Castor oil. My grandmother used it for her 9 children, and my aunts used it and my mother used it. They all swear by it. I myself used it for my first pregnancy, I took it at 9AM had bad cramping and diarhhea from 11am-1pm, labor started about twelve hours later with regular contractions and about 14 hours of intense labor with the end result of a beautiful perfectly healthy baby boy and a delivery without any complications. Yeah. I am now on my fourth pregnancy and I have taken Castor 3 times, red rasberry leaf tea, and evening primrose oil, have started labor three times with regular contractions only to have it stop each time after about 2-4 hours. I have given up on castor oil this times with the conclusion that nothing is guaranteed! Every pregnancy and every woman is different. Especially since my cervix has been 70% efffaced and i have been 2 cm dilated since 33 weeks. I am now full term and nothing... Good luck to everyone!!!

Well I know how you feel I have been cleaning everthing. I cant get anything clean enough. I honestly have cleaned the mini blinds in my home about 7 times like they really get that much dust on them but here lately I think they do.LOL!!!! I am so scared to try the castro oil I figure God will bring in this world when it is time.

What time that night did you take the castor oil


amy - December 12

Well I tried the castro oil all it did was give me contractions. I can't belive it for three days know. I pray the baby is okay. I am on my to the dr. rioght now. So I will never do castro oil again. also I learned that the oil can clog up the cord. So no more for me.
