S/O 5-W discussion: Herbal supplements for helping body prepare for birth...

So I asked my MW what we could use to help ripen cervix and possibly bring on labor. She said borage oil, evening primrose oil, and red raspberry leaf. Last time we used EPO and RRL starting at 34 weeks and we had DS 1 day after edd.

I am not trying to have super early baby just like 37-38 weeks but, I won't do anything crazy like strip membranes or castor oil early.

What have you used? Was is successful?
