my midwife told me that it works great in preparing your body for labor and that some women even make ice cubes of it for during labor because it can help with the pain and also make your contractions more productive, something to consider!

I have done a ton of research on this and it DOES NOT bring on labor. It only strengthens the uterus. Nothing brings on labor except your baby or your doctor. Plus it tastes great so drink up!

I am having my c-section on Wed. So excited. 2 more days! The only problem I am having is feeling so sorry for my son who is 2 and my little prince. Life is going to be very different for him. I have never been away from him at night and now I will be gone for 4 days :0( I am hoping his big sisters will help him through it, not to mention his daddy :0)

Never heard of anyone getting sick from tea. That sounds awful. Maybe you made it a bit too strong :0)

I've got some. I love the taste but had no idea it could start labor. I contract all the time, but nothing productive so I guess I will start drinking more :0) I am 37 weeks with my 4th child. Scheduled c-section March 23rd.

my midwife said to wait until after 38 weeks because it can have different effects on people... some people will go into labor quickly other people it just ripens the cervix for delivery! i plan on starting to drink it tomorrow as my sister gets in town to watch my older son while i am in labor and i am 2 days shy of 39 weeks pregnant.. ill let you know how it goes! see if it works for me!!
