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).

I started at 12 weeks with all of mine

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!
