Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. --John Milton

Evening Primrose Oil to Ripen the Cervix

My midwife recommended Evening Primrose Oil to ripen the cervix during the third trimester. Did you know you can pick it up at Walmart in the vitamin section?

I enjoyed this gentle aid both pregnancies and believe it works well.

Starting at about 34 weeks (obviously not before), take one daily with food. Then close to estimated due date, take three times daily with meals orally. Plus at night, insert three vaginally.

The capsules dissolve and the oil softens the cervix.

Anyone else found this helpful?
