Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I drank castor oil with my second child, who was 10 days late, but only under the recommendation of my midwife. She told me it only works about 50% of the time to bring on labor. Lucky for me, my daughter was born about 12 hours later. I would talk to your doctor or midwife first.
heres some things that will induce labor sex,squats,hiking your legs up and pushing,taking warm baths and pushing,and rolling on a excersize ball
