hi,
I am 39 weeks along with dc3 and today started drinking raspberry leaf tea BUT
have just read online that it shouldnt be taken if you've had a previous c-section (our 1st was but our 2nd was vbac), or if theres a family history of ovarian cancer (my grandma died from this 2years ago), amongst other things.
Have not heard this before, should I be ok drinking it or stop right now?
thanks

I've just been googling exactly the same question.
I have decided to go for it and will start drinking a cup a day from 32 weeks (thats 3 days away grin)
Lots of conflicting advice around but these 2 say it's ok.

Student midwife forum
3rd paragraph even says it's beneficial
