Big difference between Raspberry tea (tea that is Raspberry flavored) and tea that is made from Raspberry leaves. Anyone know if it is okay to drink while b___stfeeding?

From all I know Red Raspberry leaf tea (read the label to make sure its pure) is great to tone and prepare the uterus for more productive contractions. This means less unproductive-yet still painful ones. It does not, however induce labor, and is most effective when taken consistently for 5 weeks or so before estimated due date.

I've been drinking it for about a week with no noticeable change. I'm 39 weeks along. It does taste great as ice tea though!

raspberry tea doesn't necessarily start labor, it helps more with dilating and preparing the cervix for labor.

Rasberry leaf tea helps tone the muscles of the uterus and should not be taken before 34 weeks because in RARE cases can induce labour. I've been told castor oil is the best way to induce labour

Drinking tea for the 3rd day now. No changes except increased fetal movements and sleepless nights. Not really sure what it means?

I drank the tea during my first pregnancy and I plan to again. I started drinking one cup a day starting my 8th months. I read a lot of articles that it makes your uterus really strong and that can help to push the baby out faster, lessening the need for a c-section. I pushed my baby out in three pushes. I delivered 45 minutes after I got to the hospital. I don't think it induced labor but it did seem to make my uterus really strong. The nurses and Dr. were pretty shocked he came out that fast since it was my first baby.


carrie - April 18

it definitly shouldnt be taken until late into the third trimester, as it encourages uterine contractions,and so there is a slight risk of inducing prematuerre labour or miscarriage....but does anyone know about green tea?i am addicted to the stuff at the moment, and i know its a good detox for me, but is it safe for the baby?

No it helps with an easier labor but does not induce labor.
