Castor Oil Labor Induction — Is It Crazy? [Video]

It is officially December, and like clockwork, the supremely-pregnant women of my December 2011 birth forum have started resorting to crazy methods of labor induction, including but not limited to drinking castor oil.

I have to admit, I’ve always thought that the idea of drinking castor oil to induce labor sounds absolutely nuts, and maybe even dangerous. Not to mention, the idea of going into labor while having screaming diarrhea, well, it sounds like a nightmare!

That said, there are apparently plenty of women who are trying the castor oil method on the advice of their midwife — including this women, whose husband eagerly filmed the whole event.

Watch the video to find out what happened!

So, tell me, did you try drinking castor oil to induce your labor? How did it go?
