@turtle62212:  I recommend it to my clients who are experiencing menstural cramps or are getting ready to give birth as it relaxes the uterine walls. As a tea it varies in dosages but is not harmful so I often recommend at least two times a day.

I drank it twice a day for the last month or so. You are supposed to do something when you go into labor– drink a highly concentrated version– but I forgot. I think it helped. My uterus did a very effective job contracting once labor started.  (I went from 4cm to 9cm in 2 hours!) it won’t induce labor. Just make it a bit quicker and more effective.

Took it as a supplement for last month for small three of my children.  Each time I had a quick dilation and easy birth with little to no pain relief and my son and two daughters were all born two to three days before their due date.  Obviously I could just have been lucky but no harm in terming – I would certainly recommend x

My midwife reccomends it 1 cup per trimester – so 1 cup a day in 1st, 2 cups during 2nd tri and 3 cups last tri… the last month of pregnancy she reccomends 4 cups a day. We bought the loose leaf and make it ourselves.

I did not drink that tea, but take some homeopathic remedies in the last 4 weeks. I took two kind of little pills called Caulophyllum and Cimicifuga, 5 little balls 3 times a day from each of them. They are very small and melt in your mouth quickly.

I don’t know if I got my baby so easily without using them, but she was born altogether in half an hour! No pain, no grip, only fast shipping :))))) 

Maybe I had a very very big success. But maybe you could try these homeo balls, they are 100% natural, so won’t be unwholesome.

Have an easy pregnancy and birth!

Ooh I’m very interested in this if it makes labor shorter! 🙂

My friends was drinking it 5 times a day starting at the beginning of the third trimester. She’s hooked on it now even though she’s delivered.

I drank as much of it as I could during pregnancy, and I had 2 quarts of iced tea stored for when labor started.  Transition lasted about an hour for me, and I pushed for less than 10 minutes, so I was happy with how my labor went.  It’s impossible to know if the tea helped or not.  My midwives recommended it, and my aunt who’s an OB nurse also recommended it.  Mind over matter is a strong possibility…
