I would like your thoughts on inducing labour naturally. I am currently training to be a midwife and this subject has already come up a few times. Some midwives swear by natural induction methods such as castor oil. Other say that you should leave the body alone until it is ready to go into labour by itself, and never induce at all, and others yet will easily and without complaints hand a client over to an OB after they pass the 40 week mark. What are your opinions about natural ways of inducing labour?
