I came by this article today and wanted to get your thoughts.  How do you all feel about inducing labor naturally?  Would you be willing to give it a try? Have you tried any of these methods before?

I was taking Evening of Primrose Oil for Chronic Knee Inflamation.The midwives said I should not discontinue it. At 34 weeks I did increase my dose. I don't think it caused me to go into labour early but it was probably the reason why my water broke with a distinctive POP, followed by a gush, and my labour from water breaking to birth was only about 8 1/2 hours.
