  • it's used to tone your uterus not induce labor, right? I have some i was going to start drinking- i definitely don't want to go into labor because of it though. my friend drank it from 6 months on and didn't deliver til her due date.

  • Right staci~ it's a a uterine toner, Not an inducer.
    It's for the end of pregnancy and is good for you!
    But will not start labor.
    I try to drink it whenever I remember to. ;-)

  • I've heard it can make contractions stronger if you are already in labor.

  • If you're looking to induce labor(and you're at your due date) try eating Eggplant Parmesean, you get get it at Olive Garden.... my doctor told me about it, I tried it and the next morning my son was born.
