Can You Induce Your Own Labour?

No, it is not possible to induce your own labour. There is no proven method today that a woman can use with certainty, although some believe that spicy foods, acupuncture, sexual intercourse, castor oil, hot baths and herbal medicines can induce labour. Even pharmacological induction methods are known to have a high risk of failure if the cervix is found to be unfavourable.
