Kick-Starting Labor?

Never mind castor oil and spicy food. When it comes to jump-starting labor, Carson Daly's baby mama, Siri Pinter, is raving about something called a maternity salad. Served at a pizza joint in Studio City, CA, this supposedly labor-inducing meal is piled high with romaine, watercress, walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. But "it's the dressing that apparently does the trick," Siri wrote on her blog,, of the balsamic basil vinaigrette. While we don't know the secret recipe, Dr. Lisa Masterson, co-host of The Doctors, agrees, noting on air that since certain herbs are know to spur contractions, the herb-laced dressing is the likely baby-trigger.

What will you (did you) try to kick-start labor?  Any natural induction techniques on your to-do list at this point? :smileyhappy:
