The last stretch of pregnancy can be anything but pleasant when you're uncomfortable and so ready to meet your little one. As your due date approaches, or worse, comes and goes, you might find yourself searching for some way—any way—to get things going. I know I did. My second son was a week late and I tried everything short of castor oil to get him out. It didn't work (they had to break my water) but then I was only in labor for ninety minutes so it must have helped! These natural induction methods are gentle and pleasant so while they may not do the trick, they certainly can't hurt.
