Hi all,
I took Dr. Christopher's prenatal tea last pregnancy at the recommendation of my midwife. I have since read that pennyroyal may not be the best thing to take due to bleeding issues. I did have a postpartum hemmorrhage, but it was because I couldn't pee and my uterus couldn't clamp down over my big bladder. My baby was almost 10 pounds, so my uterus was pretty distended. Anyhow, anybody try the 5w or Polly jean's (www.birthjunkie.com)? Just curious on opinions?

I took 5W the last 2 weeks of my pregnancy, hoping ot avoid a (medically necessary) induction. I didn't go into labor on my own, but I was induced at 39 weeks with cervadil and AROM. I delivered about 4 hours after AROM, so the 5W may have helped.....

I took Polly Jeans formula. Started at 35 weeks and tooke it until about 39-40 weeks. Got tired of taking so many pills. But it did seem to help some weird sensation I was having. I went into labor 41 weeks. I had 11 hours from first labor ctx to baby.

I preferred the PN 6 over the 5w.I did not take as much as they recommended though.I went into labor around 39 weeks with the two kids i did take this with and at 43 weeks with the one i didn't take it with.
