Re: Use of blue cohosh to help labor get started?

Ok.. op, so I owe you an apology, I was wrong. I asked my midwife about it for you, and this is was the conversation through her facebook page:

Me: What is your general opinion on a woman using black or blue cohosh at 40 weeks to try to start labor? Sounds like a bad idea to me, and I told her so... but I'm willing to admit to being wrong if I am. Her OB suggested it to her. Which really surprised me.

Her response: Blue and or black cohosh can help to stimulate contractions. There are many variations/combinations available. Her OB must be a naturalist????

So there ya go.

I COMPLETELY trust my midwife, this is my second pregnancy with her... If she says it's ok to use... then I believe her.

God bless!
