I haven't had to deal with preterm labor yet during this pregnancy, but as I move closer to the 3rd trimester I'm starting to get nervous. DS was born at 34-35 weeks although when I went into labor we thought I was 32 weeks. My midwife mentioned during our first appointment that there are some herbs that I can keep on hand and take if I start feeling preterm "uterine action". I have an appointment later this morning and will ask her then for recommendations and dosages etc. Just wondering if anyone has used herbs to prevent preterm delivery. I need to make it to at least 36 weeks to get my homebirth.
