Does anyone know anything about taking Evening Primrose oil? I don't want to start my labor early, I've just been told it helps soften your cervix and makes your labor go a little smoother? If you have any info about this please do share! :)

  • EPO is safe to take in the last few weeks of pregnancy. It helps make tissues stretchy and soft, and it helps prepare the cervix for labor. It's not NECESSARY and it's not going to send you into labor before your body and baby are ready, but many pracitioners swear by it.

    Good luck, mamma!
