Drinking Olive Oil ...

Has anyone tired drinking olive oil to induce labor, This is what I read about it.


Olive oil has a laxative effect and the ability to increase elasticity of the tissues and to prepare the cervix and vagina for childbirth. It is recommended to drink one teaspoon of pure virgin olive oil three times a day during meals may help inducing labor naturally.


Any comments ladies??

Never heard of this, but cant hurt to try, olive oil is really good for you!

Ive heard of drinking castor oil to induce labor, which has a similar affect as to what you described

I've heard castrol oil, will cause loose stools as well. My midwife is having me take primrose capsules to help ripen the cervix as well. 2 by mouth every day after 36 weeks and 2 intravaginally daily as well. Good luck!

I hear nothing works unless your body is ready to start labor. Drink what you may, but I will let nature take its course!

You could put it on a salad that might work better than drinking it. Idk just straight up drinking it sounds horrible Id prob puke. But if you can stomach it that's great. Hope it works for you. :)
