Midwife recommended Primrose Oil to me as I am approaching 37 weeks on wednesday. I am trying to avoid induction (OB recommended 37 weeks, Midwife says 39 weeks and possibly full term as long as monitoring goes well). But anyway I've been encouraged to try some natural methods to encourage my body to prepare for labor and coax it into starting naturally. Primrose oil was the first thing they recommended so I was wondering if:
1.) Has anyone tried it, and did it work for you?
2.) Where do I find it?
3.) How much does it cost?
My other question is if you ladies know of any other natural methods/substances that are safe and that also can aid in my bodys preperation for labor. *Side note: I have a very sensitive cervix (they don't even want to do an exam because of it), so sexual activity is not an option. I'm looking for herbs and what not. Thanks for any advice!
