Pregnancy And Labour

Is castor oil helpful in speeding up the labour process?

One of those home remedies without any valid explanation. Some say that this indeed works but we would not recommend it. Taking castor oil may trigger some powerful bowel cramps that will only add to your problems during labour.

Is it safe to use herbal products to induce labour?

We don't think so. Herbal products do not have a standardised dosage as it varies according to different people and their opinions. Also, you risk triggering contractions that can be very strong and which may lead to a medical emergency.

Can orgasms trigger premature labour?

Go for it completely! Orgasms can cause uterine contractions, but these contractions are different from the labour contractions. If you have a normal pregnancy, orgasms have no role to play in increasing the risk of premature labour or premature birth.
