    Default Natural Methods of Labour Induction (That Actually Worked)

    Sorry to say that nothing worked for me. Curry, long walks, sex, nothing.

    I wouldn't say castor oil is natural!

    Castor oil is natural...at least as natural as curry! To the best of my knowledge, it comes from the castor oil plant. A nasty, tall red weed-like thing. It is not a petrochemical product (if it were, it may actually taste better!).

    Default Natural Methods of Labour Induction (That Actually Worked)

    Lying in hospy bed with newborn DS, I can confidently say walking and steam mopping the kitchen
    Went for a gentle stroll up the road, fell moist down below but thought it was just normal discharge. So sat on the couch for a bit, was bored and noticed some pains coming and going, but after 10 days of pre labour, ignored it. Decided the kitchen floor looked a bit dusty so pulled the steam mop out, two swipes later and had more leakage and ouchy pains. So quickly finished moppin floor while waters started running down my leg :/ hahaha
    8hrs later delivered out DS

    Eta: DS was born on his due date

    I mowed the lawn. Well half of it.


    I wouldn't touch castor oil, it can make you very sick.

    As pp have said gentle walking, acupuncture, massage etc.

    I found after having 2 inductions, I just gave up and relaxed. Babe number three was a beautiful Natural arrival.
