The herbal laxative was called Swiss Kriss. There was something called Prenatal Formula. And I took herbal tinctures that included cohosh. I meant to copy the labels and never got around to it; now the bottles are back with my midwife. Do you have a caregiver knowledgeable about herbs? There are dangers associated even with herbal induction, so I wouldn't do it alone or without learning a lot myself first. Good luck, you're almost there!

Thanks for the info. I got Blue & Black Cohosh with Raspberry Leaf Tea from my MW last Friday. Not doing a whole lot... I've been taking Evening Primrose for the last few weeks...this might have done something. Oh, well...Slowly but surely! I think...

Just be careful with that Black cohosh--from what I've heard, if you take too much it could really cause problems...I'm sure your m/w has told you what dose--just don't try and take more!<br>
Good luck mama!<br><br>
Beautiful birth story Michelle!!!!
