Answer: Yes it's safe and helps in inducing labour. You can follow these to induce labour naturally. Walking - The bumping up and down of walking can help the baby move into the birth canal. In fact, this is one of the few ways that most doctors agree on for starting labor. If walking doesn't work, try walking up and down stairs. Lifting your legs higher as you step can help push the baby downward. Pineapple - Best taken fresh and raw. Pineapples contain the enzyme bromeliad, which can soften your cervix and and bring on labor. It can also stimulate your stomach, which could also help get some contractions going. Statistically speaking, the chemicals in pineapple that are said to start labor aren't very high. It would take a lot of pineapple to get labor going. Sperm - If you feel up to sex, intercourse can work to get labor started. Sperm contains natural prostaglandins that release oxytocin to help soften and dilate the cervix. Spicy food - A very well-known labor starter! The reason it works may be because of the upset it causes to the digestive system, which then upsets the uterus. Not highly recommended Squats - Doing a few of these each day often helps to move the baby down and into position. Squats use gravity to push the baby downwards, thereby jumpstarting your birth naturally. Stretch and sweep of membranes - Your doctor will perform this simple procedure. A finger is inserted into the cervix and a gentle 'sweep' of the finger slightly separates the uterus wall and amniotic sac, sometimes leading to labor within hours or days. Some women say it's an easy, painless procedure, others find it very painful
Answer: some Dr suggest to take it but some dosen't.. ask ur mum abt tht. my Dr denied it..wait for few days..

Question: i am 40 weeks 6 days pregnant can i take castor oil to induce labor pain .
Answer: Hello dear Castor oil is not recommended for bringing on labour as it can cause nausea and diarrhea. Having a tummy upset is the last thing you need during labour. castor oil may cause irregular and painful contractions, which can be stressful to mom and baby alike.  The theory behind it is that it may act as a powerful laxative, which when it stimulates your gut also stimulates your womb (uterus) to start labour. But it causes harm to babies Consult gynaecologist first and talk about this
