Castor oil will only induce labor if you take enough to dehydrate yourself, which isn't good for you or baby.

Also, castor oil can cause your baby to poop in the womb, which can cause serious problems or death to your baby.

So I'd say its not worth it.

Definitely not! My sister took castor oil and it did put her into labor, but it pushed her son into the birth canal too quickly and the cord got wrapped around his neck 3 times, he was so purple when he came out, we were lucky he made it! Your baby will come when he/she is ready!
