root and rhizome.
North American plant's genus name is derived from the Latin words
cimex, "bug" and fugere "to flee" which is a reference to its
properties as an insect repellent. The rhizome of the plant was also
used rattlesnake bites (hence its common name rattle root) and for
menstrual and labor pains. Its root was also chewed as a sedative
and to alleviate depression. Today in herbalism the root is still
used as a diuretic, a cough suppressant, and to reduce inflammation,
and rheumatic pain.

The two most common
homeopathic remedies used to induce labour are Cimicifuga and
Caulophyllum. These are
often prescribed by midwives and naturopathic doctors to "prepare"
the uterus for labour.
Your body has its own system in place to prepare for
labour. If you are
overdue then you need to find the correct remedy that matches your
fear. It is seldom a
physical problem that holds women back from birth - it is your
head that is interfering with the natural, wise process of your body.
