Hi
Just wondered if anyone has any experience of using evening primrose oil capsules or raspberry leaf tablets in last few weeks of pregnancy to help labour progress when the time comes.

If you have used them what dosage did you take?

Thank you

I drank raspberry leaf tea like it was going out style. First pregnancy. Baby came at 39+2. Labour was 3 hours 55 mins from waters breAking. I am confident tea was a contributing factor. Good luck!

Sorry, in numbers, it was about 3 cups a day from 37 weeks (maybe 38 weeks)

I took raspberry leaf capsuals, and had quite a quick labour straight forward labour and went from 4cm dilated to 10cm in 1hour! I was 4 days overdue. I started taking 1 a day from 32 weeks and gradually worked up to 4-6 a day by week 40! I will definately be taking them again
