Using an Herbal Cream for Labor Induction
There are so many methods out there for inducing labor, many women have a hard time knowing which methods are effective and will be safe. Using an herbal cream, particularly with cohosh in it, is one of the most effective ways to bring on labor and ease the pain as well...
If swollen ankles, puffy fingers, severe back pain, lack of sleep and cervical pressure are what you have been enduring for the past 37 weeks or so, you are probably considering natural ways for inducing labor. There are so many hyped up ways out there, that it is easy to get confused. Many of the methods you will read about are only 50% or 40% effective, such as sex and castor oil. And with castor oil, comes the risk of severe diarrhea and dehydration.
Many midwives and doulas will tell you that using something to help with the onset of labor is a good idea, as long as you are at least 38 weeks. Many women seem to struggle to labor on their own, without the aid of medical intervention, herbs, old wives tales or acupressure. Using the most basic methods for inducing labor naturally, such as; sex, castor oil, nipple stimulation and red raspberry leaf tea (to name a few), are all good ideas for most women, but not typically very effective. However there is something you can use which is extremely effective, and that is cohosh.
What is black and blue cohosh? These are roots from 2 different plants, and are extremely effective in bringing on steady labor contractions and also easing the pain as well. Many midwives support its use (both oral and topical), and recommend it to their patients. Although this herb can be taken orally, many pregnant women seem to prefer the topical application instead. With both types of applications, the herb (cohosh) enters the blood stream, and will in most cases bring on good strong contractions, speeding the labor process and reducing the pain and suffering of prolonged labor. One of the most effective and best smelling labor creams is called LaborBoost Labor Cream.
LaborBoost Labor Cream uses black and blue cohosh, calendula, vitamin E and jasmine (which give it a wonderful smell). This cream is so effective in augmenting slow, prodormal labor, and has helped so many women that the results really speak for themselves. As one woman wrote, “"Thank God for LaborBoost! I had been in early labor for several days. After one application I went into labor 1 1/2 hours later and gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby boy 3 hours after that! "-Carri G. Doula & Mom, Berthoud, CO. Another lady wrote, “"I used Labor Balm when I started having Braxton-Hicks contractions at 38 weeks. I rubbed the balm on my belly and 4 hours later I was having mild contractions. After two hours of steady contractions, we went to the hospital. I was 4 cm. I couldn't believe it! “- 1st time mom Denver, CO.
This cream comes highly recommended, because it is a non-toxic, non-invasive, non-medical alternative for inducing labor naturally. LaborBoost was designed by a certified doula, and is used all across the United States. It is an excellent buy for any woman looking to end the suffering of prolonged labor, or to begin the process for others. When it comes to labor induction, there really is no other way.
