Hello all....i had my anc at the hospital yesterday,& asked the consultant about the raspberry tea,he seemed to think thers a myth in the workings of it but as with all herbal remedies caution should be used when taking them as he said that if you take the tablets or tea before 32weeks it can bring on prem labor...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so be careful girls....xxx

sare is correct, you shouldnt take this tea till late in the pregnancy. It just helps soften everything really which can reduce the chance of tearing and helps to relax the muscles a bit more too.

Its safe to drink & wont harm the baby,its suppose to be quite nice & good for you,but always follow the instructions on the packets & if you have any unusual symptoms stop taking it & inform ur gp or midwife.......x

it is safe my midwife told me to take it, it softens the cerfix so u dont tear and rip, and it does help, promise, but dont take it till it says so on the box, and u soon get used to the taste, lha ha, 3 cups a day, one in morning one at lunch time and one in evening, thats all, and too all thats over due, prune juice is great, tastes horrible but works!!!!! good luck all xxxxx
