Evening primrose oil is an essential fatty acid that has two effects through pregnancy. For some women extreme mood swings and emotional ups and downs of pregnancy can be lessened by taking a daily dose of evening primrose oil. In addition, towards the end of pregnancy, the oil, if placed near the cervix, acts to soften and ripen the cervix in preparation for labour. A common midwifery remedy is at 38 weeks is to puncture a capsule with a pin so the oil can escape and insert it into your vagina as far in as you can at night before bed. This will absorb into your body over night and any remnants will come out in the morning.
