I used both!  I started drinking a cup of RRLT per day 2 months before my due date.  I think I bumped it up to 2 cups/day when I hit week 36.  I started using primrose oil when I hit week 38.  I think I took 1000mg/day of the primrose oil… 500mg orally and 500mg as a vaginal suppository.

I had a very quick delivery (this was my first child).  I went from “feeling crampy” to delivery in about 10 hours.  I had an unmedicated birth and it all went very smoothly.  I’m not sure if the RRLT and EPO helped at all, but if I got pregnant again I would definitely follow this regimine again!

I’m starting to look into these too and am interested in how to use them and if they worked!

I’m still only 31 weeks, but I’ve been drinking RRLT for a month and it causes a noticeable increase in Braxton-Hicks, so I’m sure it’s toning my uterus. I’m curious to hear about the evening primrose oil too.

I started RRLT at 32 weeks I believe. I continuted to up it every few weeks. I used 500mg of EPO orally starting at 35 weeks I think, maybe 34? I upped it to 1000mg orally at 36 weeks I think? My water broke at 8am and I delivered my baby at 1:50pm. I didn’t tear or anything. Not sure if either of them helped, but I’ll def do the same for the next baby. I had an awesome delivery experience.
