Re: I want to hear your experience with castor oil
Castor oil causes diarrhea which dehydrates you. The dehydration is what causes contractions. When I worked in L & D we had lots of mamas that came in after taking castor oil with contractions. We sent most home since they weren't in true labor. A little bit of fluid and most stopped contracting pretty soon. Plus, if it does happen to work for you and if you progress quickly think of the fun diarrhea while pushing :-( ick!
