No. The side effects of caster oil are terrible, and at best, it will only induce labour if you are already very close. Most often, it doesn't work. You just get the diarrhoea, vomiting and nausea.
And in your case, on the off chance that you are close, you want to give the baby every extra hour you can inside! A normal term pregnancy is 38 to 42 weeks. Babies born early, even just a little early, can have trouble breathing or an underdeveloped suck reflex that interferes with feeding.
