I used it with my second birth. i tried it first with castor oil at 41 + weeks or so..which didn't do anything but clean me out. then a week or so later i tried it again and it sent me right into labor (fast and furious 4 hours later i had a baby in my arms). my midwife swears by it for naturally inducing labor. its worth a try!
ETA: the reason it works so well is that it is a strong uterine stimulant. midwives in Europe supposedly use it much more frequently (im in Canada)
if you feel good, let that baby stay in longer. i felt totally safe when my girls went over 41 weeks ( i have had 2 of them do this) and it was only when we were over 42 weeks that my midwife really wanted me to have my babies..she said it was okay to go longer, but i was getting impatient by then.
Once in while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.... mama of 4 lovelies, an angel, and one on the way.
