Some people swear it worked for them. Some people try and try and nothing happens. This study says it will bring on labor. This study says it won’t. Some are willing to try anything. Some can’t think of anything they’d like to do less.
The answer seems to be: PROBABLY NOT. I think your body will give birth when it’s ready. Wiki Answers claims that none of these so called “natural remedies” will start labour unless you have already begun to dialte, anyway. So bring on your spicy foods, vigorous walks, frequent sex…. I have a feeling none of it really makes a difference in the end.
