I am a huge fan of the Polly-Jean formula. My labor with my fourth baby was about 48 hours of good hard labor. I took Polly-Jean with my fifth baby and she was born in under four hours with very little pain and a few good pushes. I had a lot of bleeding with the fourth one and very little with the fifth. It did cause me to have a lot of prodromal labor, but in the end it was worth it. That labor was awesome. I am pregnant with my sixth now and plan on taking the Polly-Jean again with the time comes. I highly recommend the stuff and for me at least, the claims were true!
