Raspberry Leaf Tea.


Ok. So who has used it? When did you start and how much did you have? And what were your experiences? Would you try it again?

I'm tempted to get some!

i had a few cups a day from about 35 weeks , obviously i have no basis for comparison but i really believe it helped with labour.
i dont know how long i was pushing for but it cant have been too long, and didnt seem at any point like i couldnt do it, in fact my body did most of it for me... i only added extra pushes at the very end just before he crowned, before that my body was kind of doing it without me i just went along with it
id get some anyway , even if it does nothing for you it tastes alright ( but i do like herbasl teas) and wont do any harm

Ive used it
I think i started week 35.
I started on just 1 cup a day and bulid it up but not slowly, by 38wks i was having around 10 cups a day, purely because i found it extremely nice!
Well, i can say for deffo RLT was the reason for this, but it is certainly nice to think it was, i did have long labour (26hrs) when it came to the pushing stage (Which is what it helps for) Only pushing for 10mins, i think pretty decent time for first time.
Would i try it again, YES, it's nice to think it will help again, if not i shall enjoy drinking it.
Im going have 2/3cup a week from 30wks, then 1 cup a day from 32wks.

I read that you can start it from 30 weeks? For this reason, I was going to start next week. I love herbal teas anywya so it shouldn't be too much of a chore!

I rank 2 cups a day from 32 weeks and increased it to 4 cups when I was 37 weeks.

I was in established labout for 6 hours and only pushing for 25 mins.
I swear by it and will be using it for my next pregnancy!

I used it in my 1st preg & tbh i actually liked it as a drink once i'd put a little sugar in to make it sweeter, So i drank quite alot of it i can't say it helped with labour as i was induced , poorly & had hell of a time so cant exactly comment.

I'm got some more now & have 1/2 cups a day although ideally your meant to be 32 wks i just like the drink, Can feel more BH with them too.

Being induced again this time too. *sigh*

I drank loads of the stuff! I was in established labour for 8 hrs and pushed for 40mins. But my MW said that had more to do with me having an active birth and following her instructions.
