Just wondering if anyone else is using either of these during this pregnancy or has during a previous pregnancy....
My midwife recommends starting both at 36 weeks. For those who haven't heard of either, Red Raspberry Tea is a uterine tonic so it tones the muscles of the uterus and abdomen. I've read that it "focuses" the BH, makes l&d easier and recovery easier. Evening Primrose Oil is said to help soften things, mainly the cervix. It's meant to take orally earlier and then can be applied directly to the cervix, perineum and scarring from 38 weeks on.
