Post subject: Raspberries
I know I have written this on other topics, but I felt I should post it in a new topic, as that way I will have a clear conscience when I see people putting raspberries in their recipes.

I don't know if there is any truth to this, but I have been told to avoid raspberries as they can make your uterus contract, resulting in miscarriage...so I just thought I would warn people...

Apologies if you have already seen me write this, but like I said...clear conscience and all that jazz!

Erm i heard it from my midwife and she said herself that not many people mention it, even other midwives...i think it's because nothing has been proven about raspberries. i wouldn't worry too much if you have already had raspberries as i don't think it harms the baby, just makes your uterus contract, which obviously if that happened you would know about it. so if you feel fine, and baby seems fine, then i'm sure everything is fine.

i'm sure it's nowhere near as dangerous as smoking, or drinking, or stuff like that, it's just something you should be cautious about xxxx

I've heard that this refers to raspberry leaf tea rather than the fruits themselves, so don't worry xxx

Laughing raspberries? Laughing Laughing no, i think theres been a misunderstanding there! its raspberry leaf that holds that theory and even then, it doesnt necessarily make you go into labour, it helps to tone the uterine muscles to make them more efficient and therefore making it able to produce more effective contractions. its supposed to also shorten the length of the second (pushing) stage. i tried it with my jake and i pushed for 45 mins, whereas with my first it was over 2 hours!
anyways, in regards to raspberries (the fruit) themselves, feel free to eat them if you fancy, as they are a great source of vitamin c and antioxidents Smile
