Devils claw for labor pain relief?

Postby Amandajhartman » Fri Jul 28, 2017 9:36 pm

I am currently 35 weeks pregnant and have been researching different herbal option for labor pain. One very intriguing herb that I haven't been able to find much information on is Devils claw. Apparently it's been traditionally used as a labor pain reliever in Africa at low doses (250mg 3xs/day) starting a couple weeks before labor. I was all set to try this remedy (and had my midwife's go-ahead) when a friend told me their naturopath/herbalist advised against it due to stillbirth concerns. In all my searching I never have seen anything related to stillbirth and was wondering if anyone here is knowledgeable in this herb.
