    Epo is to make the cervix favourable and ready for dilation. Rlt is to strengthen uterus xx

    I took RLT caps orally and EPO orally and internally from around 34-35 weeks and increased dose week by week.

    I only had 2 grazes where as with my first pregnancy i had 2nd degree tears (didnt take epo) so I'd like to think the epo internally helped with my cervix aswell as the non tearing.

    RLT ive taken in both prgnancies and both times have had fairly fast labours aswell as contracted back afterwards.

    Heres now my labour went last week!
