I remember a discussion on herbs for birthing prep, including a couple links, the second one in the OP includes motherwort and a dosage recommendation for that blend. The consensus seemed to be it's usually best to let the body do its thing in its own time though. http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1325640/five-week-herbal-formula-for-easier-births-do-you-have-your-clients-take-one
Why do they think your rib is broken? If it is your upper right quadrant, that could indicate HELLP Syndrome. For that kind of pain, you need to get checked out ASAP.
ouch mama, i cracked a rib with DD and it was not fun at all, esp since i still had to work full time. if it makes you feel any better DD came at 39 weeks without any kids of interventions
