I'm 37 weeks 2 days. I've been stuck at 1.5 cm and 70% effaced for 3 weeks now. I bought some EPO (evening primrose oil) capsules today to try and help soften my cervix some more and help w dilation. I bought the 1000 mg capsules since that's all they had. I am wondering how much should I take? Anyone have experience w this? I've tried calling my Midwife but have had no luck reaching her today. Fridays are busy at the clinic I go to. And if you did use EPO before did it help w dilation and effacement for you?
