I used it in my second pregnancy starting at 40 weeks (I went to 42 weeks), and again in my 4th pregnancy starting at 40 weeks. I honestly can't remember if I used it in my first pregnancy. It really didn't make a difference in all four labors. I can't really say if it "helped." My cervix was never a problem in my labors, if that helps. I do know that I was already dilated to 4-5 when I started using it in my last pregnancy.

I highly recommend it for first time moms, single moms, or moms with cervical scar tissue. For multips, I don't make as big of a deal about it.
