Background: It is well documented that prolonged labor is associated with complications. This systematic review aimed to study the effect of Anethum Graveolens Linn (Dill) on the duration of labor. Methods: We conducted a search on PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane central, Web of Science, and MEDLINE. All randomized controlled trials and observational studies evaluating the effect of Dill seeds on labor were recruited. The mean differences (MD) with 95% CI were calculated. Results: Two RCTs showed that using Dill seeds could significantly reduce duration of the first stage (MD = −43.66, 95% CI [-52.99, - 34.33]), second stage (MD = −15.76, 95% CI [-20.06, −11.47]) and third stage of labor (MD = −1.79, 95% CI [-2.62, −0.95]). Two retrospective cohort studies showed a significant reduction in the first, and second stages of labor. Conclusion: Using Dill seeds could reduce the duration of labor. Using this herb in low-risk pregnant women is recommended.
