I ate a whole pineapple and thats the only thing that made my uterus contract or even tingle at all....lol...I was not doing it to solely induce labor but rather to help it along.
It's also why I said and do a crap load of walking.
I can give you a million successful castor oil stories(not exactly a million), but I have been a member of this site long enough to know when to leave well enough alone. It was a personal choice and this may very well be hers as well. I posted about my castor oil story and no one said a thing, I was actually quite surprised at the reaction.



I just think some members run with the majority, to deny that as truth would be too colossal of a lie.

Hun, I understand clearly what Castor Oil does. But I firmly believe that the only reason anyone negates castor oil is because it is not medically backed as safe. My doc (whom a may defend as not being a quack before making this statement) had no issues with me doing so. She informed me of the risks all of which I was already aware and sent me on my way, unfortunately for me nothing happened.



So many women opt for PITOCIN and that has a crap load more side effects than Castor Oil does, why do you think this is?

"Pitocin is used to empty beds in the maternity wards faster, because an empty bed filled is more money. And the birthing is what costs the most, so they want as many new patients in as possible".
^^ My sentiments exactly, I agree with you whole heartedly on this aspect. But I drew that parallel because you don't see people going Bazonkas when Pitocin is mentioned. But Castor Oil receives the Backlash that should be afforded to that drug as well.



My daughter was 2+ weeks over due and thats her passing the last of the three due dates given. On the screen you could see large deposits of calcium where the sac began to ossify. Which was far more dangerous than having her out AT THAT POINT. Babies don't always come when they are ready. I read this misconception all the time. I come from a family of holistic believers and for the ones who deliver babes for a living they never have that issue(the big poopy mess I mean). Being ill informed is one thing, but bashing someone for being ill informed is just as bad an offense. I've seen every castor oil post turn over to TDC except mine..:D

Absolutely not!!



Did you know that piton induced labors can cause decreased blood flow to your uterus which can cause baby to have a low heart rate?

Oh no I agree with you. You just said I guess what I wasn't able to relay, which is that if a doctor were administering it no one would care. Or at least frown at it just a little less because if the dangers did arise, they could at least do something to remedy it.



But I see now you mean the ladies who are not FULL TERM vs. TERM taking it by some ill advised crock on the net. gotcha!

In your case Pitocin was MEDICALLY necessary. Research will tell you its actually the only time it should be used.

this is why america has the second highest newborn death rate.. is bc americans are too dumb to understand that the baby will come when its ready and birth is a natural process not a medical procedure. too many doctor intervene with the natural process like giving c-sections and inducing labor when its not necessary.
