I’ve been drinking it since 25 weeks, apparently makes the pushing stage of labour quicker. I drank it with my previous pregnancy and only pushed for a couple of minutes. I like to think it was the tea!
Shorter pushing when I used it too, although TBF it was my second anyway and also a bigger baby which tends to be quicker.
But I figure for a few quid (pack of sixty bags on Amazon) and a bit of yuck - I really don't like herbal/fruit tea - it's not a big hardship if there's any chance it helps. So I'm having one or two a day now.
I’ve brought the capsules and they say from 30 weeks. The tea says not in early pregnancy. I’ve been having anything from 2-6 cups a day for the last 4/5 weeks and I’m now nearly 30 weeks. It’s a myth it induces labour. It just helps tone your uterus. Does anyone know if it’s true about it helping to soften your cervix?
Raspberry Leaf Tea is the only thing my 30+ years’ experienced midwife told me actually has evidence to support it of all the labour-related “old wives tales”. I had a v short pushing stage. Who knows whether it helped but I will be drinking it next time too.
