i've read a couple times on this forum that taking black cohosh can help jump start labor. Is there negative side effects to this herb? What does it do?

I haven't heard any negative side effects but I have heard it's more effective to mix black with blue. Hope this helps! And my sources are a midwifery site. I will try finding the link for you if you wish.

I took black cohosh and it caused my heart to skip beats and made me feel lightheaded.

Blue and black cohosh These herbs are used often to induce labor. They may be particularly effective if you are having weak or irregular contractions. Blue cohosh is believed to make uterine contractions stronger, while black cohosh may regulate the contractions. Together, they work to make contractions more effective. Unfortunately, no studies have determined that these natural treatments are safe, or whether all versions of the herb available for purchase are of equal potency. Be sure to discuss any herbal treatment with your pract_tioner before attempting it, to see if it is a good idea in your situation.

Yay! Cora used the cut and paste b___ton on a website. At least that keeps everyone from being confused on the little dashes that mysteriously popped up when I tried giving you the hyperlink. Thanks Cora!
