    Hi Ladies

    I know its advisable not to start having it yet but im just wondering for future reference and to get some in ready. Also when is actually best to start taking it?

    I heard you can get it in capsules or the actual tea? which is best? or do people do both? also where do you buy it from? ive never seen it any where..... but i suppose i avnt actually looked before, haha

    Thanks for any help

    I've got the capsules started taking from 32 weeks - 1 per day then increase by 1 per week till you're taking maximum of 6 per day. I've heard they're as effective as each other, I guess it's all personal preference : / you can get them both from Holland and barratt if you're from the UK : )

    My midwife said to take them from 37 weeks 4 times a day. They will help make contractions more effective but will not put you into labour. :thumbup:

    I drink the tea.

    I buy it from Tesco.

    I get 'Clipper Organic Raspberry Leaf Tea' 20 bags.

    I drink a cup a day (started at 32w) made with two tea bags that have sit for about 5 minutes.
