From what I heard it just gives you the shits. Also seems to be very frowned at by the mamas on here.

Castor oil is dangerous to the baby, most wen on here frown on it. Expect some negative comments.

Try walking and sex

Most doctors will warn against it - my midwife and doctor both told me not to touch the stuff as it can, in some cases, kill the baby (there was one of these incidences during my labour).
It's better to be safe than sorry so steer clear of castor and try walking/sex and my midwife suggested a swim but not so sure that's a good idea in a public pool :? lol
