I asked my midwife if she recommended any herbs or teas, or anything else. She listed a few that she has used before.

PN6

5W

Polly Jeans 5 week formula


have you used any of these? or have you used something else?

I've never used those, but my midwife has me taking a herbal uterine toner. I've had a lot of false labour with my other babies, this stuff is supposed to prevent that. It's this:

I used Polly Jeans 5 week formula with Fritz. It did absolutely nothing. He was still born 10 days late, still bled afterwards like usual, still had a typical length labor (10 1/2 hours).

Sorry, I've never heard of any of those. All I took was raspberry leaf tea, EPO, alfalfa and fish oil.
