Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

actually by having castor oil, u ll suffer from loose stools...so plz dnt have tht..it may cause some other prblms..ghee is gud...but truly these things wont help..do walks take plenty fluids n balanced diet..this might help u..


all old people say it helps . all r telling me also but I have heard it cause passing of stool of baby so m scared . is it really worth trying.  how to get into labour fast .

hi I can't tell u by experience. but few of my friends have tried this castor oil trick and it has worked without lose stools. and ghee and milk is a similar trick. u can mix castor oil in some smoothie in the morning. do some walks and household chores. if it's ur first baby it's highly unlikely for the baby to slip out. all d best. 😊

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

well i ve nt tried but have seen cases, so i mentioned..as sheetal said it may helps also if u take it along with diet..but i never reccomend...as its a question of mother n baby 😊

Castor Oil is prescribed in Ayurdeva for constipation. Hence i suggest you to wait as your doctor has adviced.

hi in my experience I had  2 to 3 pieces of pineapple n omlet with castor oil it really worked  a lot I had my pain with in 2 hrs n do walking also dnt worry once ur baby is ready to meet u they will automatically come out...good luck for u both

Your doctor is right and is willing to wait. It's best to wait and allow labor to start on its own.
