that is not really true. actually come to find out because i used it the doctor told me that i was lucky that my baby didnt have any affects from it because your really not the pose to use it because it could cause your baby to pass a BM in the womb before he or she is born. so i would not recommend this at all. what you could do is use a birthing ball if you have one and bounce on it or walk like an hour or so or more. squatting also helps for trying to engaging the baby more into the pelvis too. evening primrose oil if you use it vaginally if you have some it could help ripen and soften the cervix more too.

Ive looked it up alot because I was going try it. what it says to do is take 2 teaspoons mix with oj I guess it helps with the taste. My friend drank it last week she drank 3 teaspoons she put it in rootbeer and froze it she went into labor within two hours. Hope that helps good luck!

you can take Tylenol for the pain up to 2 tablets every 6-8 hours.

I think you mean castor oil, castrol is a type of petrol i think!!!  Ive read many pros and cons of taking castor oil to induce labour. Most medical professionals do not recommend taking it to indce labour, it just makes things really messy!  

Google it for more info.

Good Luck!
