RLT and EPO..when, how and how much?


Out of the game 4 years so just wanted to know what everyone was doing with these now?

Last pg i drank raspberry leaf tea til it came out mt ears but didnt enjoy it so i was going to go buy some capsules.
Never took epo as i was a bit scared and didnt want to cause anything untoward.

Would be interested to know what mums are doing in the lead up to due dates x

I would also be interested in knowing this. I didn't try anything last time, thinking the baby would come when he was ready, and ended up being induced a week past his due date at 0 cm dilated lol. I'd like to be a little more proactive this time.

It's been over three years, but I believe I did two capsules of EPO starting at 37 weeks. Or maybe it was one? I'd have to do some digging to find out. I drank RLT all day but I actually enjoyed it with splenda so it didn't bother me.

My last pregnancy i inserted one capsule at 38 + 2 and the next day it gave me some awful contractions one after the other i really thought that was it but it all fizzled out by the night time. It gave me a really uncomfortable day for nothing so i wont be trying that again. Just irritated things really badly. X

I drank rlt but didnt really like it and it brought on bracton hicks. I had a really soft cervix last time and was 2cm dilated at 37 weeks but dont know whether it was the rlt that contributed to that? He was still a week late x

I drank rlt last two times and I was still induced, but I pushed out my babies in three pushes and healed a bit better than the first time.

Iíve never done either but my friend frank rlt with both her pregnancyís and both came 2 weeks early

Sorry if itís a stupid question but does it just taste like squash if you let it go cold. I donít drink tea or fruit teas and canít bare warm squash. But wondered if it would taste nicer cold

I think I started at 32 weeks last time with raspberry leaf tea, or was it 34
And I think EPO is from 36/37 weeks but I never bothered last time and it sounds horrendously messy so don't think I'll bother

Sarah- I don't know about drinking it cold but I always put in a spoonful of honey to sweeten it

I drank it cold as i was carrying in the hottest summer! I added peach squash and it was like an ice tea 😊

It's not awful at all but it definitely needs something whether that be honey, sweetner, sugar or added squash whatever is your thing x

I never did anything like that last time but my SIL passed on some RLT and capsules that she didn't use in her last pregnancy so I might give them a shot this time. My midwife last time told me RLT doesn't do anything to bring on labour but strengthens the uterus. After pushing for almost two hours and requiring an assisted delivery with DS I'm willing to give RLT a go if there's even a small chance it'll help.
