Evening Primrose Oil and Red Raspberry Leaf Tea Neither will actually induce labor. While some lay midwives will argue that statement about the Evening Primrose, which is the reason it is not recommended until 36 weeks or "full term", almost all sources with experience agree that it does nothing that the body was not ready to do on its own. I will repeat this at the end of this section, to make sure you understand this, as there is a lot of confusion and misconception surrounding these two substances. Evening primrose oil is an excellent source of prostaglandins, which we already determined readies your cervix for labor. It can be taken orally as soon as 34 weeks, and can be applied directly to the cervix at full term (36 weeks). The general recommendation is two 500mg capsules per day until week 38, at which time you increase to 3-4 per day. The entire capsule can be inserted v____ally (inserted just before bed, it will dissolve before the first time you wake to use the bathroom), or you can use the oil on your fingers for your perineal ma__sage, then also rub on your cervix (a__suming you can reach it). Applying directly to the cervix is optimal, but the beneficial ingredients are absorbed through the external skin or the stomach also. I found this at maternity corner. com under natural labor inductions

I've been taking primrose seens I was 34 weeks now 40 this Saturday. I had a Dr. appt today and she check me. My cervix is soft but no other changes. You must have to do this stuff everyday for any changes to happen. I have another Dr. appt on the 28th so I'm going to start doing it v____al and see what happens. Is it safe to take a day or is that to much.
