I'm 39 weeks and 1 day, I've tried almost every wives tale to induce labor in the book... nothing has worked. The only thing that has helped make progress is doing different yoga positions and sitting on an exercise ball to help baby engage into my pelvis. If your body isn't ready, you are only going to make yourself frustrated. I would not try castor oil, all it does is give you cramps and the runs.


I cant ask my doctor about taking primrose oil pills, but I bought them today, and I really want to take them. I know there isn't any harm in taking them its natural and is recommended by most OB's and midwives. But this is my first baby and I have a feeling I might go over due, and I really don't want to get induced. So I want to jump start my labor

They are 1000mg and the suggested amount to take is 2000mg in the morning and 1000mg at night by most midwives.
