Question: Is it safe to use castor oil post 38 weeks of pregnancy?
No. It was commonly used long ago but there's good reason it's not used anymore. There is too scientific evidence that it does NOT benefit the mother or baby (meaning not really effective). As
well, the evidence shows it causes HARM as it causes side effects like stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea. Which isn't good for you or the baby! What is proven to decrease the chance of going overdue is to get your doctor/midwife to sweep your membranes once a week starting at 38 weeks.
You could also try walking and/or sex. Scientific evidence has not been able to determine if they work or not but lots of women swear by those methods. So skip the castor oil. Ask for a membrane sweep. And in the meantime, enlist your partners help with sex and go for a long walk. Good luck!
. And, 38 weeks is not full term. It's close, but not quite there. Baby will come when baby is ready. I can understand your impatience. I did not deliver my son until I was 41 weeks pregnant.
