Should I talk to my OB before i take these????

I want to take primrose oil capsules. I am 39weeks, due in a week and want to take primrose oil, is that something that I should discuss first, or can I go ahead and take them? Is there any harm to the baby if I take it now? He is already head down, I am not dilated at all, nor thinning. My doctor said he will induce at my 41 week mark, which I really don't want. I don't want any meds .

    I live on the beach, and it is really hot and humid so walking isn't a option at the moment. I am drinking this tea I bought from publix for pregnancy. It has raspberry leaf and other stuff in it.

      I am a single mom to be, I wont be having sex. But my OB said that if I haven't had my son by 41 weeks, they medically induce me, which is not what I want. I want to avoid any meds like that. So I am trying everything herbal and natural.

        I don't know anything about primrose oil but has your doctor even considered stripping your membranes to see if that starts anything? I had it done with my fifth but maybe I had already started thinning out and everything was the right condition? Anyways, it worked. I had our second son that evening. For whatever it is worth.

        Stripping membranes isn't like having pitocin or any other drugs to induce and as I said, I was already thinning. This actually saved me from having my labor induced, which was scheduled the next day because I was a week and a half overdue. It was a much better alternative in my book and it worked.
