I'm now 34 weeks PG and I'm armed with a bottle of RLT tablets. I took these last time from about 36 weeks I think (went into labour at 37+4 weeks) but had 3 days of contractions! My second stage of labour was only 15 minutes so not sure if this was down to the RLT or not?
So I'm not sure whether to take them again or not, ad if so when from. What have your experiences been of RLT? Thanks
I used the tea. Had a lot of braxton hicks in the run up to going into labour. DD arrived the day before due date (PFB, so a good result there) & labour was around a reasonable 12hrs. Don't know if you could attribute this to RLT but if I were pregnant I'd use it again just in case
I tried it twice a day with 1st pregnancy with pineapple, hot curry and sex. (the tea was twice a day, not the other stuff!)Was 10 days late and induced! Although I was very quick when I got going, I don't think it worked at all!
You can take RLT throughout pg as long as it's prescribed by a qualified herbalist. The tea is much more effective than the tablets. I noticed a dramatic increase in braxton hicks as soon as I started on the tea at 20 weeks. This is my second pg and I think it helped my first altho it's hard to say as I had an epidural.
Snort - drank gallons, and took tablets too. (also did all other things supposed to help - pineapple, walking, breathing techniques/cd's, sitting on a poxy exercise ball bouncing while watching tele for weeks refusing to sit on sofa). Ended up 2 weeks over, induced, 2 days of labour and emcs. Il still be taking it to cover my back next time, but dont really have much faith in it. Il also be lounging on the sofa.
I took RLT with DD and will start them this week with DC2 (I'm 36 weeks).
I don't feel they did anything to help get labour going but I was told that my uterus shrank back very well and I didn't have loads of bleeding afterwards which I know RLT can also help with. It is also reported to be good at helping milk supply at the beginning if you plan to bf
