Are natural methods to induce labor...

any better than being induced with drugs?

I'm talking about things like membrane stripping, AROM, castor oil, sex, nipple stimulation, acupuncture, teas, etc. vs. Pitocin or Cervidil. I'm not sure which camp a Foley bulb would fall into, since frankly, I don't care to think about that if I don't have to.

Anyway, why are natural methods better? It seems like a lot of women have a holier-than-thou attitude about using natural methods to induce labor instead of drugs, but isn't that still encouraging the baby to come before s/he may be fully ready?

This is totally meant to be a debate, but a CIVIL one. Thanks.
