Don't use castor oil. It MAY cause contractions, but that's because it seriously irritates your bowels and causes diarrhea. It can also irritate your baby, cause him/her to pass stool in the womb, cause fetal distress, and serious harm to your little one. Not worth it.

Anything besides a medical induction is not likely to help. Sorry Momma. :( I know you hate to hear it, but nature knows best. It's best for you and baby to wait until you're both ready.

Hello, we want to remind you that a woman should not try to induce her labor on her own unless she has consent from her doctor and is at her due date and full term.  Thank you

Nothing will work if your body isn't ready. Also, you shouldn't be trying to induce your own labour  unless your doctor says it's ok.

There is no way of starting your own labour, I've gone overdue with all 4 of my babies and I've tried everything. Unless your body is ready it won't do it. If you want to help yourself get ready walk, bounce on your ball and rest lots. Keep your energy up, stay active and stay calm, there's a reason most women go into labour at night, it's because you are relaxed. Good luck mama
