Quoting Anastasia Keener:" Was just curious to see if any ladies have tried it and if so did it help you go into labor. I'm 38 weeks ... [snip!] ... dilating and my cervix is still thick the doctor recommended me take two by mouth and two vaginaly. Any theories ladies? "yep i took them from 34 weeks inserting vaginally and by mouth 1000mg a tab, i was 2cm at 37 weeks and at 39 weeks after 20 hours of labour had only dilated to a 3 and it took another 11 hours of labour and a lot of pitocin till i was 10cm. so definatly didnt work for me
Quoting She Trusts:" I took EPO from 35 weeks on starting at 2000 mg and ending at 5000 mg by 40 weeks. It is not a labour ... [snip!] ... really helped with such a fast and easy delivery. With my first son I didn't take anything and had a 14 hour labour."i was also taking the RRLT capsules and tea from 32 weeks and didnt help.
Quoting Anastasia Keener:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Little Bug's Momma:</b>" I thought they just found out its not ... [snip!] ... not safe. Castor oil is a laxative that can make you sick and basically bring on labour. EPO is used to just soften the cervix."
Quoting Little Bug's Momma:" no,it was evening primrose oil. I know for sure because I was going to try it this pregnancy... my midwife ... [snip!] ... women having issues with their babies being put in the NICU...she started to do resaerch and found it to not always be safe."
Quoting Suraya's mommy ♥:" It didn't do a single thing for me. Unless your body is ready on its own, nothing will help. We tried so many things and it was nothing but a pain in the ass."this! so true!
