    hi lisa can i please ask a question as a midwife i was lead to believe that we shouldnt be encouraging women to drink rasp leaf tea before 36 weeks is this wrong. as your posts suggests that we should be telling them to use this from 33 weeks.
    can you advise me please or at least point me in the right direction to find out about it

    Hi, just google it. All information says to start it at 32/3 weeks. To be honest if it were going to put you into labour they would use it on labour ward to induce labour instead of prostin. There is little in the way of evidence that suggests it puts a woman into prem labour. There is plenty of information to suggest that it can tone the uterus up over the last 8 weeks or so.

    Hey Lisa, came here to find that thing you published recently about some European med org deciding that induction was a big mistake. Can't find it. Did you not categorize that one under "induction"??
