    My natropath told me to start with one cup a day at 34 weeks and increase it by one cup every week from then until you're drinking four cups a day

    It gave me a few bh for a while but they have really settled down now.

    I started the tablets at 32 weeks. Much better than the tea, you have to drink so many cups of the tea in a day for it to actually do anything, and it is an acquired taste.

    i started the tablets at 34 weeks. It was the best decision I ever made...my labour was wonderful and so much less painful than my first labour when I didn't take them.

    I started the tablets at 34 weeks. Both labours were a breeze.

    You can also opt for a tincture if you don't fancy the tablets or tea (I think the tincture may be more effective too).

    My midwife has told me to start at 34 weeks and that the tincture is the most effective, but after a few enquiries and nearly fainting at the cost of having a tincture made up, I am just going to go with the tea like I always have.

    Last pregnancy I was also drinking the tea whilst in the first stages of labour and it was by far and the way the least painful and quickest labour I have ever had!
