is there a "generic" brand of castor oil?
or anything equivalent to it that will help induce labor?

apparently castor oil doesn't actually help. My friend drank a whole bottle of it and had chronic diarrhea. The baby is gonna come when it wants too and if not than the dr will induce you. I wouldn't try inducing your own labor unless you go for a bit walk or something. Otherwise it could be harmful trying lots of things.Source(s): 10 w + 4 d pregnant with my first

Don't try castor oil. It can put your baby into distress and that can be bad news for your baby. Just be patient. Pregnancy doesn't last forever.

Castor oil can be dangerous to you and the baby.
