I started drinking this yesterday in the hopes that it will help me go into labour. I read on other boards that some people saw some very immediate results, although that hasn't been the case for me yet.

Anyone had any luck with this?

I drank it with DS. It's supposed to encourage ripening of the cervix, not induce labor, if I recall correctly. I drank it throughout the last month and was 0cm dilated and 0% effaced by my induction at 39w! So it didn't do anything for me. I hear you on the desperation of trying anything!

I drink RRL tea, combined with nettles, throughout pregnancy as a uterine tonic/strengthener. I don't think it really works for bringing on labor.

Have you tried EPO? Not that I think that works either, but some women swear by it.

Tried it with the last kiddo. Someone told me to drink 4 glasses a day (and it is good cold).

I was induced at 41.5 weeks. there was nothing happening down there. but give it a shot!

I drank it with both my boys and this pregnancy. It won't induce labor but is meant to help your contractions soften and dilate your cervix more effectively.
