The oil isn't bad - stir it into some orange juice or other juice and drink it very fast! Actually, I'm so lucky that labor and childbirth isn't particularly painful for me. Really! I've never had any pain meds or anesthesia of any kind with any of my children and it's not because I'm a martyr. I just never needed it.
Check with your doc or midwife before taking castor oil, of course. But midwives often suggest castor oil to help induce labor in a full term pregnancy. My OB suggested it to me. He also suggested a couple of other things I'm not sure I could post here but if you want to know, PM me.
