Has anyone heard of this? My friend told me about this the other day and basically it works the same as spicy food or castor oil, by stimulating the bowels. I have been trying to research it and found some sites that say that it may work. I am ready to try anything lol. (4 days overdue today) What do you ladies think? I don't want to do it if its dangerous!
its says its not recommended and I don't think that the mw would do it
Alot of hospitals give enemas before/during labor around here so that the woman doesnt have a bowel movement during labor and to speed up labor. I have never heard of it actually starting labor but it cant hurt to try it. Plus it only costs like $2. I also just decided it cant be more dangerous than a chemical induction which they are going to do to me next week if I cant get this started naturally.
