I've heard of Raspberry Leaf tea but not sure if it helps with actual pain or not! x

The T that is good for labour pain is a T-ENS machine. smile

Or a T-epidural.

Raspberry leaf tea helps prepare your uterus but there's none that I know of to help with pain. TENS and gas and air worked for me though!

Raspberry leaf tea

But I found an epidural much more effective smile

Gas and air it is again then. Don't need help going into labour if the previous two are anything to go by, but a pain free labour would be nice is there such a thing and how is that achieved?
