No, I am *NOT* planning on inducing my labor at all ESPECIALLY with this stuff. However, lots of moms seem to think this is some magical labor inducing substance that's not as dangerous as the conventional methods of induction (pictocin, cervadil, etc). But there ARE risks to inducing labor with castor oil such as maternal fatigue and dehydration and the chance of meconium being passed into the amniotic fluid. AND it doesn't always work. So here's my question for you ladies...
Did you "induce" your labor with castor oil?
Did it work?
Would you do it again?
