Just wondering if anyone used evening primrose oil to help bring on labour? Apparently you can take it orally and use it internally to ripen cervix. Am just a few days over but terrified of being induced next week :o(

I didn't take it orally but did use it 'down there'. I was too terrifed to put hte capsule in so woudl squirt it in :o0 God when I think back. but DD arrived on EDD so something worked! I started this in the last week along with popping raspberry leaf capsules as if they were smarties and bouncing on that blooming ball day and night!

Clarysage oil in the bath ismeant to bring it on too, haven't heard about the primrose oil. Daff thought your not supposed to take the raspberry leaf until your over 32 weeks?
