    My mother-in-law swears by cumin tea! You take cumin, a slice of potato, and some sugar to sweeten and boil. Drink quickly! It tastes horrible! I tried it, but it hasn’t worked, yet. Apparently, it is an old Mexican remedy!

      I strongly recommend NOT drinking two bottles as this is VERY risky to you and baby. If you’re going to attempt castor oil, read this article first.

    I did pressure points on my hand for 4 hours. Went to bed and 2 and a half hours later woke up in labor, drove myself to the hospital and was diffently in labor. My daugther was born 6 hours later. Ask a massage therapy person about it. There is 2 places on your body to do them. However your body won’t go into labor if its not time.

    Here is a shot you can make for yourself to start contractions:
    Warm water
    Olive oil
    Then glass of milk afterward to combat the acidic shot and prevent heartburn.

  11. Dallas says:

    I drunk TWO TABLESPOONS of castor oil at 38 weeks. I was 0 dialated and 40% thinned. I used the bathroom twice and started having contractions within 2 hours. The contractions were 2 minutes apart from 7p.m. to 7 a.m. I went to the hospital and was 2 cm dialated. They hooked me up and induced me and I had my 7 lb 14 ounce boy at 8:49 p.m. that next night after 30 minutes of pushing and one small cut. It worked for me but doesn’t mean it will work for everyone. It only works of you’re ready.
