    I took the tablets in my last pregnancy, and am starting this week in this pregnancy.
    Dunno if they work however, 1st pregnancy resulted in an induction, failure to progress at 2cm and then fetal distress with an emergency section, 2nd where i took the tablets had an induction, five hr established labour and 11 minute pushing. So I'm defo taking them again.

    I tried a cup at 28 weeks just to see if I liked it and had contractions all day - they didn't result in labor for me, but that's probably because my baby wasn't ready. I'll be starting it again when I'm just about full term. I know it will help me along. I hope it does the same for you!

    i've started couple days ago-one cup a day, tea actually tastes nice :D and didn't have any BH or tightenings from it. I've read loads about it. It won't induce labour but could help with the speed of labour and muscles of uterus.

    rlt isnt meant to induce labour. its to strengthen your uterus for the pushing stage.
