In ancient times it was used in Russia in order to stimulate uterine contraction in a short time. Surely not everyone knows that such a method of stimulating labor is not at all harmless. Because it is not about a few drops of this drug, but about using 50 grams of the product to stimulate uterine contractions. Such a dose of castor in a woman in labor can cause severe diarrhea, as well as vomiting. After all, in fact, castor oil is an enema that is applied orally. Stimulates the work of the intestine in a strengthened mode. This peculiarly awakens the uterus and causes its weak contractions. The fruit during the cleansing of the intestine can descend into the birth canal.

In this case, there can be no question of stimulating labor activity, because used, in fact, comes back with vomit masses back. That is why it is highly recommended not to take castor oil in its pure form before the birth. It is necessary to give preference to so-called cocktails with this product. Auxiliary components are kefir, juices, champagne.

Some doctors advise women to take castor oil after the onset of labor to strengthen labor activity. In this case, one-time reception should not exceed two tablespoons.

So, here are the options for using the product to stimulate delivery:
