    I would start it at 34 weeks
    34 weeks-1 cup
    35 weeks-2 cups
    36 weeks-3 cups
    37+ weeks-4 cups

    I think they put that on the back to cover themselves, although there are certain people who shouldn't have it, such as those who have previously had a very short labour

    Its meant to help tone your uterus muscles and is said to shorten the second stage of labour.

    Most people say to start with a cup a day at 32 weeks. I started with a cup yesterday and plan on having a cup every other day for a couple of weeks... Because my baby is big and needs to come at 38 weeks instead of 40, darn it! lol.. Anyway, I wouldn't start drinking it before 32 weeks because when I tried it at 29 weeks, it gave me lots of contractions.

    Also, the kind I drink say it's FOR use during pregnancy to help tone the uterus.

    Popping in from Baby Club - I took RL capsules from 37 weeks, not sure if it was the RLT but 2 pushes and my LO was out. Id had a difficult labour and was about to be taken for a c section so probably a mix of determination too x

    Tone your uterus, and help shorten your labour length. I think it works too as my first labour was 4 hours.
