I'm 37wks i've heard the tea helps with inducing labor. I've tried sex and it brought on contractions then they stopped. Has the tea worked for anyone else?

The tea helps to tone your uterus and make contractions more efficient. It also helps everything to shrink back quickly afterwards.

I don't think it will make your body go into labour unless it is ready.

It is definately worth taking anyway as it may make your labour quicker but accupuncture might be a better way to get labour going.

As ajm said, it doesnt bring on labour.
It can speed things up once in labour so for that reason ill be taking when at your stage!!
