I agree that NOTHING makes a baby come before it is ready to however, the raspberry leaves are supposed to make the pushing stage shorter, in my last labour I had 2 pushes and baby was out but you don't want that either though as too fast can have it's problems as well.
I dont know if this counts. I had my first two without RLT and had to be induced on both occasions then had major PPH.
With number 3 i took RLT towards the end, and he was a little late but he came on his own, had a nice smooth labour and no PPH. But we did combine RLT with nooky which my DH though was great. "One more, that will do it" he used to tell me and i was desperate so i believed him!!!!
I took RLT when I was pregnant with my daughter, now 2 1/2. I was 2 weeks late, had a horrible 26 hr labour followed by emergency c-section. Saying that, when I do finally get pregnant with my next baby, I'll still give it a go again. X
Just adding to my last post though, my DS was born just 13 months after his sister so my body may have been in the zone so to speak. I was just glad that i didnt need inducing. Labour for me was easier without induction. I only had G&A and that was because it was there, not really because i needed it!
I didn't take them with DS and he was three days late - 24hr labour. Took the tablets with DD from about 30 odd weeks and she was three days late - 20hr labour. Not planning on a no.3 but wouldn't waste my money to be honest.
