    When did you start taking rlt? I'm pretty sure I started at 32 weeks last time but it's been 6 years and can't remember!

    It's meant to strengthen the cervix and speed up labour. Not sure if it works but my mw told me to take it in my last pregnancy and my labour was really fast for a first baby

    Hey, I've been taking it since 32 weeks. Starting at 1 cup (then moved on to tablets once I knew how I reacted to it) and now taking 6 a day. Be sure to start with small doses as apparently some women are really sensitive to it. Doesn't affect me at all.. I haven't notice and BHs after taking them or anything.
    I personally would start with the tea and then move on to tablets as the dosage will be lower xx
