Induce labor foods
# 1- Ginger
It’s considered as alternative of medicine. Ginger is reputed to cause menstruation. If you go to figure it, will find that ginger increases peristalsis that cause intestinal contractions to facilitate movement of food through the gastrointestinal tract. Even though it has a character for doing so, but there is no clinical evidence that ginger induce labor. You should try and draw conclusions, do not you think?
#2 – Pineapples
Pineapple contains a proteolytic enzyme called bromelain that can help soften the cervix. That’s why it is said that this fruit has the “power” to induce labor. Moreover, as it has a great digestive, anti-inflammatory and diuretic power, could stimulate the intestines to be in motion. As a result could cause the tan, or not expected contractions. Ultimately, if it doesn’t help you to induce labor, at least, will help with water retention, right?

Although there is no scientific evidence that spicy food induces labor. Yet there are testimonies of many women who say they have eaten spicy food and have begun labor pain. Who knows! What we do know is that spicy food stimulates the stomach, which can cause contractions. Did you ever try?
