  • I used black cohosh pills with my daughter. I only took one and it got my contractions started.They were very irregular though. I was too scared to take so I dont know if you take them around the clock if it will get your contractions regular and speed things up.But I do know that it gets them started

  • i didn't use that but I did use castor oil with my daughter and 30 minutes later I was on my way to the hospital... I think it was a total of 3 hours from the time i took the castor oil until she was born.. it worked but made me sick
