The midwive's cocktail- reccomended to me (or allowed, I can't remember) by CNM w/ DD at 39+ weeks. It was the same measurement (maybe a tbsp?) vodka, castor oil, and orange juice. There is some discussion about whether this could send some babies into distress/cause them to release meconium in the sack, but I didn't have those complications. I will be avoiding it this time though in order to let baby come when she is ready (if at all possible).
