Long latent phase and raspberry leaf?

Hello, inspired by apple82's raspberry leaf tea thread I have been wondering...

With DS1 I had a week long latent phase (contractions kept coming and going for a whole week - sometimes very strongly, got sciatica, no sleep, not a great time had by me!). I had been taking raspberry leaf capsules from about 37 weeks. Latent phase started at 39 weeks and I am now wondering if they caused the labour to start without my body being ready - if you get my meaning?

I had raspberry leaf tea and had a 3 day long latent phase. This time I'm not taking the tea and I will let you know what happens smile
Haven't got a clue if t is related or not.
