Have you tried Massage cupping below the knees  to the ankles.a local Chinese doctor can help with arranging this. It is painless and involves rubbing oil onto the legs and using a light suction cup to rub the front of the legs from below the knees to the ankles.

Castor oil is banned where im from so i cant try that one. But i hear that eating or drinking something that will make you have a bad stomach and can garentee youll be on the toilet all night can do just the same as castor oil. But now im up on the spot with it i cant actually think of anything that will do that to me lol.

Eat fresh pineapple it helps dilate it helped me a lot with my second pregnancy

I have heard several things to help with labor.  None of which I have tried in my own so I can't say if they really work or not.  The first one being oregano and basil tea which is supposed to help you dilate.  And the second is sex.  Hormones in sperm are said to bring on contractions and labor.

I can honestly say that sex does help, I was only 30 weeks and I got contractions from having sex. Also bouncing on a birthing or yoga ball helps too!

I went 9 days over. The only thing that worked for me is walking... A lot of walking. It's also the only thing I really tried, I didn't wanna do anything that might be dangerous. But walking and I'd say bouncing on an exercise ball(squats) are two thing that help and help you with actual labor cause it's gets your pelvic muscles ready.

Nipple stimulation work and bring on active contraction.
