I've known a few people who used a combination of Black and Blue Cohosh for ease in labor. I am seriously considering using it but when do you start taking it? I'll be 39 weeks on Sunday, going for a natural home birth. I've been taking Red raspberry leaf for about a month now so hopefully my cervix is nice and soft! My midwives just confirmed yesterday that the baby has dropped and really low. So when do I start with the cohosh?
