I think it's 36 or 38 weeks. Someone will have the definate answer for you though.

no, go to a health food shop and get the real deal. if you dont like the taste you can get it in tablets instead

yep 36
and you must drink the lawnclippings stuff like the rest of us

So, no harm in drinking the Twinnings stuff at 34 weeks then, since it wont do anything, right??

i found that the capsules made me quite sick so i stopped taking them. u can start taking them a 36 weeks but seeminglyly u can drink the tea from earlier which i find a bit odd

The tea as a drink is very low dosage so fine from 34 weeks. Raspberry tea is different from Raspberry leaf tea btw.

I started taking the low dosage capsules at 34 weeks and then changed to the higher dose tablets at 37 weeks. DS was born at 38 weeks and my m/w said it was because of the raspberry leaf tablets bringing on early labour. I got my tablets from Holland and Barrett healthfood shop.

Am now 32 weeks preg and not planning on taking them this time round just in case the midwife was right.

The labelling on the bottles has the guidelines for doasage and the staff in a reputable health food shop should have the info to hand as well.

All the best

I was told by a midwife that it was ok from 34 weeks.

I drank the tea and had the capsules ans still made it to 41.5 weeks. I had a very easy labour though so hopefully it was worth it.
