Re: ways to start labor or encourage it!
Actually, my mother is a midwife and castor oil is not recommended very much anymore due to babies having issues with it. Not only does it make mommy poo, but sometimes it induces baby to poo too..and that is not good! Nipple stimulation works wonders!! You can go about that however you choose(ie. yourself with hand, hubby, or a pump), Red raspberry leaf tea isn't proven to induce woman but sometimes it does, and even if it doesn't, its great for your uterus and toning it...hope this helps! Also, you could have your dr/midwife strip your membranes..it put me into labor after 2 days.
