Polly Block, a midwife, writes in her
Polly's Birth Book--Obstetrics for the Home *:
* "We have found the Polly-Jean Formula--an herbal
combination that gravidas begin taking five weeks prior to anticipated
date of delivery--to be a boon to the home birth movement. It assists
in the following ways:
- Much easier labor and delivery.
- Longer and easier labors for women who tend
to have precipitous births.
- Shorter and easier labors for women who tend
to have long labors.
- Bigger dilation before discomfort arises.
- Minimization of postpartum bleeding when
taken in conjunction with the "Good Program"
"Good Program" is spelled out in Polly's Birth Book).
- Shorter periods before lochia stops.
Other formulas on the market have helped many mothers, but over the
years midwives have found that these formulas did not assist enough in
preventing hemorrhage in women with borderline anemia, the Rh-negative
factor, and other conditions. We found that when pennyroyal was
included in the formula, bleeding continued to be heavier than it
should be. We also found that black cohosh seemed to increase the
normally stepped up production of estrogen, adding to the hemorrhage
problem. Jeannne Johnson and I eliminated both these herbs when we
developed our formula.
Midwives who recommend this formula for use have frequently reported
only 1 teaspoon to 2 tablespoons of bleeding with the placenta
separation in normal deliveries. Even in problem deliveries, only ½ to
¾ cup blood loss (considered normal) was reported. If these assessments
are correct, the results of the Formula are phenomenal." (pgs. 155-156)
reviews from satisfied users:
three years ago, I found out that I was expecting my fourth child. My
previous midwife had advised me not to have any more children due to
extremely long labors accompanied by excessive blood loss/hemorrhaging.
Through research and prayer, I found the PollyJean Formula and ordered
it. By that time, I knew I was expecting TWINS and the stakes were even
higher, as multiple births have bleeding problems due to the overly
my presenting twin was breech, my midwife's back up doctor insisted
that I have a C-section. Every doctor that I consulted said the same
thing. Finally, at the suggestion of the back-up doctor, I met with one
of her Professors at UF Shands teaching hospital in Jacksonville (they
also have one in Gainesville). He was known as a breech expert. To make
a long story short, I ended up delivering the twins in the operating
room at Shands Hospital on a narrow metal gurney, feet in stirrups,
bright lights and about 20 medical professionals looking on - it was
the most amazing birth experience of my life.
twins were two days late when I went into labor naturally. We woke up
the children, dropped them off at friends, and headed for the hospital.
By the time I got there, I was already 10 cms!!!!! We had to WAIT for
the doctor to arrive, so I cannot put a proper time on my labor. From
the time my water broke to the time I was checked at the hospital was
only a few hours. The whole process, from start to finish, was less
than 5 hours!!! (Pretty amazing, considering my last labor was about
three days, followed by the usual heavy blood loss.)
The breech delivery went without a hitch. In fact it was EASY. My
doctor was AMAZED at my lack of blood loss and asked me what I ate
during pregnancy. (I had only been seeing him for a few weeks, so had
not told him about my regime.) I told him about the Polly Jean Formula
and he wanted to know everything in it. He said in all his years of
teaching and practice, he had never seen such little blood loss in a
twin pregnancy. Not to mention the fact that I was carrying 15 pounds
short, I cannot say enough about the Polly Jean Formula and recommend
it to all my pregnant friends. I thank God that I found it and truly
consider it an answer to prayer. I look forward to using it again, now
that I am expecting Blessing #6, a precious boy, due February 9.
are not enough to express my gratitude to you for making it available.
formula was a fantastic supplement for my home birth. I was amazed at
how I gave birth so easily in less than three hours!" Marie, with baby
This was the fastest labor of my 6 births! I usually labor for at least
10+ hours, but this time I had him in under 4! I could really tell the
frequent Braxton Hicks contractions were helping to get things ready. I
will definitely be using your herb formula again if we have another
had an awesome labor and birth- hardly any bleeding at all, where, with
my other births, I have lost too much blood. Even my recovery was very
quick and easy." Sarah
I was introduced to your herb formula by a client. She told me she was
using it, but I didn't really put all that much stock into the claims
(oh, I believe in the benefits of herbs and such and even used RRL tea
for some of my own pregnancies, just some of the claims seemed a bit
stretched). I have served as midwife for this client at 2 previous
births and know her to labor long and hard with too much blood loss at
the end. This labor was so different, though! She labored very
efficiently and the baby was born in under 5 hours, start to finish.
She had minimal blood loss and was up and about very quickly. I am just
VERY impressed and can see that it really does live up to the claims. I
will be recommending it to my clients from now on (can I get a referral
fee for that - lol - just kidding!)." Carrie
recently gave birth to our fifth baby. I have a history of long, slow
labors. During past pregnancies, I've taken red raspberry leaf tea and
evening primrose oil, and once an herbal formula similar to PJ's, all
with an aim to preparing my uterus and cervix for labor. The results
were nonexistent to mild at best. I'd either have no Braxton-Hicks
contractions at all (that I could feel), or mild ones that petered out
a week or two before birth. My non-induced labors were long and
dragged-out, with several days of prodromal labor before "the main
event". This time was different! I took the recommended final-month
regimen of PJ's and had 4.5 weeks of very strong Braxton-Hicks
contractions. It really felt like they were "doing something" for a
change. Labor was quick and efficient, and we had a wonderful, easy
birth. PJ's is an exceptional product, and if we are blessed with
another baby, I definitely plan to order it again. Thanks, Charity, for
making PJ's available to your customers!" - Kathleen
Five-Week Antenatal Formula
contains the following
red raspberry leaf
bayberry root bark
product is 400 capsules, which is a full 5+ week supply, depending on
the quantity doseage you choose to take. Similar products are sold in
bottles of 100-150 capsules and do not tell you that one bottle is not
enough for a full 5 week course, so you end up needing to order more,
possibly getting them too late. Your purchase of Polly Jean 5-Week
Antenatal Formula covers your entire prenatal need.
Polly further writes on page 156:*
"Six to nine capsules a day are recommended. It is recommended that
dosages begin the FIRST week (five weeks before due date) with two
capsules in the morning and two nightly, before meals. Increase the
SECOND week (four weeks antenatally) to two capsules, three times a
day. Increase the THIRD and FOURTH weeks up to about three or
four capsules, three times a day, according to individual tolerance
levels. Maintain this dosage until delivery. The formula can also be
used a week to ten days postpartum advantageously."
I have been in email contact with Polly and she said I should include
the following information: "The Polly-Jean Fivne-Week Antenatal Formula
tends to create a balance in the stepped-up hormones toward the end of
pregnancy. Over the years women have reported that they have
found no better 'female corrective' than the Polly-Jean formula,
pregnant or not."

I highly recommend Polly's
Birth Book. It is a wonderful resource for for
preparing for homebirth (especially unassisted childbirth), or for
those interested in learning more about how the birth process works. It
was written as a study manual for midwives, but, by using layman's
terms, Polly made it very easy for the average reader to understand.
There are 533 pages of text and 71 detailed illustrations. Polly's
Birth Book is in print again and is available at PollysBirthBook.com
