Castor Oil Had Been Used For This Reason LongerThan Your Existence Obviously It Works...nobody Is Shoving It Down Your Throat??
I don't attack anybody if ya felt that way i speak my opinion like everyone else here's a good one opinions r like butt holes everybody has one lol i'd just hate to hear somebody try something and it go terribly wrong only reason i even said that it happen to my bestfriend and that's how she lost her first baby she only had very little of it too she went to the bathroom inside her it got in her lungs once she was out she was in the nicu for god idk how long and sadly after that it was it theres a name for it i don't remember it still upsets me till this day anyway thats why i said be careful just because it is dangerous
Negativity? There are more cons than pros. Your baby will come when its time for him or her to come. Getting medically induced is ALOT safer than taking castor oil. You should feel bad, because you are putting your baby in DANGER..regardless. I'm not sure where you are getting your facts from, but you aren't making any sense either.
There are women who shoot up meth, crack, heroin. Drink and smoke cigarettes. Like using castor oil isn't the biggest deal. Ive read alot on women who have used it successfully and others who just had diarrhea. And last time I checked, Im pretty sure OBs or any Dr aren't just handed degrees. If your Dr supports you don't worry what anyone else is saying. Everyone always thinks they're right and haters gonna hate! Good Luck :)
I don't care if ur views is different that's fine but u got jazzy at the mouth first n thought I wasn't gone say something back I don't care if u don't agree with my opinion I'm grown n know ppl gone do wat they feel is right rather u right or wrong just watch your slick comments n u won't have to worry about being "attacked" I simply stated an opinion but because u didn't agree u responded wit a snotty attitude now good night n hopefully everything goes ok for ur baby!!! Tootles!!
im pregnant with my 4th child right now.. my fist 2 were delivered by one dr but I was seen in an office with 4 different doctors and my last son and this baby will be delivered be another. All of the drd I have seen suggested castor oil! I never did it because the smell made me sick however I highly doubt that 5 different drs are going to suggest something harmful to my babies. I also did research in it and there is no direct contact with your uterus when taking castor oil it only causes contractions through bowel movements. If she chooses castor oil thats HER CHOICE! Hr BABY.
Just for the record my midwife advised to try castor oil with my first to avoid having to be induced with drugs from the hospital because if anything that can put MORE stress on the baby. Just being alive while pregnant is a risk, you could trip and fall, get in a car accident, get bumped into at the grocery store etc etc, so I find it kind of dumb to sit around and bash someone for trying a method of inducing. Is it influencing you and your child if some random lady is trying castor oil.? No. So what's it to you.? And the doctor I have have now has also recommended trying castor oil with orange juice because she doesn't like to induce with pitocin because of the stress it puts on baby. I highly doubt I'd have 2 different medical professionals advise me to do something if it was as dangerous as you are making it out to be. Sorry just really tired of the bashing going on in this app.
I had a friend who was selfish and couldnt wait for her baby to come naturally she used castor oil and her baby started to stress she lost her baby the next morning IT IS DANGEROUS! If you are in a hurry to bring your baby into this world before he/she is ready youre obviously not ready to be a mum it takes patince which is obviously something you dont have
Thanks Ladies I ApPreciate The Support, Wasnt Expected To Feel Like A Bad Mom And Called Out If My Name When Asking For Opinions But I Guess You Gotta Take The Good With The BAd. Best Of LuCk To Everyone!
Its just as dangerous to get "medically" induced also with all those drugs. Everything in this world is "dangerous" my cousin almost lost her baby by being induced at the hospital. Just because its something done at the hospital doesn't make it safe. Yall are some judgemental women. Just because its not something you would do doesn't make her a bad person or selfish. Get over your self im sure all of you have done something that was nicessarily "safe" for the baby.
Beebaybee don't even take any of that negativity to heart.! It really cracks how people are so quick to judge and talk stuff, yet when there's other girls who have a legitimate question these women are nowhere to be found. Seems to me they're just trying to find someone to bash because they have nothing better to do.! And as someone else posted castor oil is no more dangerous than the drugs they use to induce you at the hospital. If anything I'd think it's even more dangerous because as it's been pointed out castor oil is a laxative.! Heck throwing up puts just as much stress on baby as taking a laxative would if not more stress. Good luck sweetie and I hope you get to meet your little one soon.! :)
Firstly, Meth, Heroin, Alcohol and Cigarettes are all irrelevant. Those are "drugs" and although yes, technically Castor Oil IS a drug it isn't THAT type. It's a laxative more than anything else. So... That aside...
My uncle is an M.D. and when I asked him about this he shook his head and said "the worst thing you can do"
Inducing isn't nearly as dangerous as Castor Oil. So whoever said that can hit the Medical Books.
It does more harm than good. If you want your baby to have a bowel movement and get an infection and pneumonia. Right on. You're rightfully entitled to consume the oil. Also, IF and IF your want to go into early labor at LEAST make sure your cervix is thinning and you're dilating. If neither are done then expect extreme cramping and lots of poop and a C Section because you're just not gonna be ready to push. Plus you'll stress the baby with too many cramps but no space to come out through. Your stomach will be tight as heck.
It's nasty and it smells even worse.it even dehydrates you so IF you're still set on it. Drink lots of fluids and stay close to the toilet.
Geez beebaybee, glad this was your post and not mine as I would have reported the two for being so nasty at the mouth. Some people need to get their hormones under control! Yes it can cause complications, just like anything else! Epidural, pitocin, the magnesium and procardia to stop preterm labor, even TYLENOL has been said to cause complications in babies and moms yet your doctor would still tell you to use those things! If she got the okay from her doctor and you think he is an idiot then that's your opinion but no need to take it out on her!!
Congrats!!!! :) hope you have a good night!!! Ignore these petty women. They're mean and nasty and obviously have no idea how to keep their mouths shut. They can all grow up and get a life. You didn't hurt anyone. The sad thing is most of them are adults or supposed to be anyways. I'm glad you're both healthy. Best of luck sweetie xoxo
I find it funny that the women that commented on this post yesterday have stopped and minded there own business but some of you continue to drag it on after the other mothers have stopped. I thought we were suppose to be adults?
