Cinnamon Tea and labor? **2Lynns8707*ES* 2 kids; Autryville, NC, United States 3598 posts

i'm not a fan of inducing labor or making a baby come, but i'm due tomorrow anyways and if i don't go then i will be induced at the hospital next week...

a lady today told me an old family remedy was to drink Cinnamon Hot Tea, i guess boil tea with a cinnamon stick and drink lots of it... something about it is supposed to onset labor? she had an accent and seemed as if she wasn't from around here... so i don't know where this idea comes from, just know its different... anyone heard of it? tried it?

I've never heard of that... but it's just tea and cinnamon so I don't see what the harm would be. I'd drink it tonight (I'm not pregnant) because it's so cold, and I don't even like tea! lol

Did you try the cinnamon tea? I am due anytime now according to my dr but she said that 3 weeks ago. I started to drink the cinnamon stick tea but just wanting to know if anyone else has been successful with it
