    Don't worry, it won't bring on labour - it'd just meant to strengthen and tone the uterus muscle so the pushing is more efficient in labour. I think they only say to not start too early as it does bring on some Braxton hicks and stuff. I started around 35 wks I think - it has to build up in your system over a few weeks. Started with 1 cup a day, then went up to 2 in the last couple of weeks (although sometimes I forgot!). No idea if it works or not though lol

    You can start from 33/34 weeks.

    I started taking the tablets at 34 weeks but I've not always remembered so I've missed a few days here and there lol.

    When I remember I take two tablets at the same time, per day. The bottle says to take 2 a day and not to exceed that so that's what I've been doing x
