I wouldnt take caster oil its not recommended by any docter nor nurse , it can harm your baby in so many ways I know ppl who have tooken it and lost there baby at birth just because they wanted to rush there babys birth. Your baby will come when he/she is ready.

Drink prune juice its a lot safer healthier and does exactly what caster oil does

I def. Would not advise castor oil. There have been several posts that I have seen by women stating that when they took it, it not only caused them to have a bowel movement but it also caused their unborn child to have one as well which is very dangerous.

Don't do it. People have lost their babies from drinking it. The baby can have a bowel movement in the womb.

It will do exactly what it is intended to do - clear out your bowels. Unfortunately it will probably do the same for the baby. That's why drs don't recommend it anymore.
