Go with what your midwife says but the earliest is 32 weeks and my mw gave me this guideline
32 - 34 weeks - 1 capsule a day
34 - 36 weeks - 2 capsules a day
36 - 38 weeks - 3 capsules a day
38 + - four capsules a day
hey, what do these capsules do? If you don't mind me asking...
They are a uterine tonic, meant to tone the uterus to make contractions more effective x
i was looking at the capsules in holland and barrett and it said consult the doctor if your pregnant or breastfeeding but the tea bags didnt say anything.
where else can you buy them?
I've got the tea bags from holland & barrett , £1.29 for 20 bags . x
I am getting them tomorrow but not sure the tea or the capsules?
I got my teabags from holland and barrett too, they are lovely. Will start on capsuals soon though, where from????? i dont want to pay through the nose for them!
i got the capsules from holland and barrett and i also noticed that after i got them lol but i thought they would be ok coz alot of people on here talk about using them from there thats why i got them. x
I use both but capsules are fine if you dont like the tea x
I have never heard of this before. Is it not practiced much in the US?
It's not exactly looked highly on by the medical community because it's herbal. I'm sure quite a few midwives use it but I've not heard of any OBs using herbs of any sort to induce/advance labor.
On a side note, do we have anyone here that has successfully used raspberry leaf before and knew, without a doubt, that it was responsible for helping labor along?
