  1. I researched castor oil a bunch with my first, because as a doula, I was very averse to induction. But I found myself in the situation where I felt it was my best option. I found exactly what you said- 2 tablespoons is the best and most effective dosage, administered twice. It worked perfectly for me and I took one dose at 11am, and another at 2pm, had my first mild contraction at 5, and baby born at 7:30pm. My midwife recommended 2 tablespoons mixed into vanilla ice cream, with root beer poured over. My sister was induced with castor oil and Foley in the hospital and she got more contractions from castor oil than pitocin on 26.

    • GE,

      I enjoyed the varied topics (& not to mention Castor oil) and flow of information; good energy, very entertaining.

      These islands of sanity are refreshing.

      Btw, my longest SROM near term was a Mom who was 36 wks, Frank Breech; and went until 40 wks awaiting spontaneous labor. We did 2 x weekly BPP’s and prescribed prophylactic PO abx. She had a safe and healthy vaginal breech. Btw, both she and her husband are Attorneys. Informed consent, coupled with shared decision making and responsibility.

      Working on that App🤔👍

      Yes, it’s a free country about everything except Ob.

      Be well
