My midwife suggested the use of black and blue cohosh to help get labor started with my last dd b/c my blood pressure was high.
I put just a couple of drops into some red raspberry leaf tea. I only had two cups over 2 hours before I was in active labor. hth
But what you do depends on a lot of factors...are you having any warm up labor yet? What is your history of giving birth, weeks-wise? Or, if this is your first, what about female family history--on both sides of baby's family? Because some women just take longer to cook babies, and this can run in families--and because baby is also involved in providing signals to start labor, you have to look at the father's female relatives as well.
