  • I'm drinking it now. I'm 22 weeks, and frankly, I'm wondering the same thing: does it really make a difference? It tastes, umm... leafy. Green. It's a pleasant taste, and usually I drink a quart a day without sweetener. I put honey in it today and it was nice.

  • yes it does make a difference. i had a painless natural labor and i didn't even have to push. my uterus did all the work painlessly because it was so strong. in fact i don't get cramps from my period anymore either, i used to get horrible ones...now i don't get any....i coupled the tea with lots and lots of exercise while pregnant too so that might be a factor

  • I enjoyed the taste and it made the contractions stronger (I think). I was having contractions due to my wheezing at the same time.
