Does gentle birth formula work?
By far I like gentle birth formula more. I was very concerned using this because of the blue cohosh. From what I can tell, there wasn’t enough cohosh to cause trouble, but just enough to help my body have a smooth labor and delivery. We have had no negative effects, but use your best judgement.
