    hope it works cause ive been taking it.. started at 37 weeks, 1000mg a day.. now im 38 weeks im taking 2000mg a day..

    you can take it from about 34 weeks i think and build up..

    you can also insert into ya cervix.. which i havnt done and not sure if im going too..

    sorry i cant be much more help.. just hope it does work haha.. :) xx

    I inserted it from 37 weeks and gave birth at 39+6, so I have no clue if it worked or not.
