Other Natural Ways to Induce Labor
Other natural methods of inducing labor include the following:
- Walking to encourage the baby to move closer to the cervix
- Sex (orgasm releases oxytocin which can trigger contractions)
- Massage (stimulates oxytocin production)
- Nipple stimulation (causes the release of oxytocin)
All of these methods can help to trigger the birth process if it doesn’t start naturally, but using castor oil to induce labor remains the most popular option for many women around the world.
