Re: Prepping for induction?
I was just induced 2 weeks ago with my little guy. What I did to prep was evening primrose oil orally starting at 36 weeks, I took 1000mg once a day then upped it to 1000mg twice a day orally at 38 weeks along with 1000mg internally before bed. I also, with guidance from the midwives I had with my DD, used homeopathic caulophyllum and cimicifuga. I started a week before I was scheduled to be induced with the 30C strength, I took 5 pellets of the caulophyllum one day then 5 pellets of the cimicifuga the next day, and continued alternating until my induction day. On the day I was being induced I took the caulophyllum and cimicifuga alternating every 20 minutes for 4 hours. My induction went really smoothly, checked into the hospital at 6pm, had cervadil placed at 9pm, and my DS was born at 5:13am! Hope that helps some and good luck with your induction!
eta! I also drank RRL tea throughout pregnancy and added in RRL capsules starting at 28 weeks.
