I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant and getting v fed up! I've tried

Customer Question

I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant and getting v fed up! I've tried pineapple, raspberry leaf tea and even sex but still nothing. I was wondering what ur thoughts are re using castor oil to induce labour? I hear it can cause baby to breath I n meconium which can lead to issues with their lungs. Does this apply even if I have a c section (which is what I need to have). I know I should just be patient but body is really aching. This is my 4th baby.

You had three LUCS before and I think this pregnancy has to be terminated by elective LUCS.
So why are you trying for induction of pain? Castor oil tea etc were used in the past when medical science was not available in the written form. So don't try any of these herbal products.
If you are having with any problem please inform your doctor .LUCS can be performed at any moment as the maturity of the fetus is 38 weeks.
Thank you
