First, I love my RRL tea! I definitely have more BH contrax--which I'm telling myself is really giving my uterus a good work out!
I want to whip this uterus into shape for this birth--it's gonna be great!
Second...I've heard good things about EPO...and was advised by my doulas to take it by mouth in the last 6 wks, and also insert vaginally in the last 2 wks--then do perineal massage to prepare for birth.
A friend of mine did this recently and delivered an almost 10lb baby who was almost 23" and only received a tiny scratch--couldn't even call it a 'tear'...course she delivered in water and hypnobirthed, so who knows which of those things really made for such a nice delivery ya know? I'm gonna try it all though because I don't want a tear this time! My last tear was small, but it tore into a lubricating gland and caused LOTS of pain for months....finally had to have the Dr burn the scar tissue off to let it reheal--then it was ok.
