when can i start drinking rasberry leaf tea?

hello everyone,

i've bought 6 boxes from H&B last week its on offer....just wondering, when can i start drinking the tea...im 33+4 today...some says from 34 weeks and some says you shouldn't drink it until 36 weeks because it will give you braxton hicks...
does it really help ease labour pains? i know it suppose to toned your uterus and make second stage labour quicker....is that true?

thank you for your advice and answers....

loveXX

I started to drink it at about 36 weeks (i think) and gradually increased the amount up to four cups per day and i had lots of braxton hicks, went into labour on my due date and a very fast 2nd stage of labour (an hour and a half) with just gas and air for the pain! I obviously dont know for sure if the raspberry leaf helped but it cant hurt to try can it?

I have to say I'm not overly convinced! I think it's more to do with how your baby is coming out

DD1 - Labour from beginning (tiny niggles) to end 13 hours with a 16 minute 2nd stage and no raspberry tea!

DD2 - Labour about 3 days with a 3 hour 2nd stage and forceps! And I drank it from about 33 weeks.

I liked the taste though and made a nice hot drink aside from tea

If you think it was yummy it can't be pure raspberry leaf :snigger:
I thought the tea bag ones were nice bacause they had apple or something in to help with the taste but when i bought some loose raspberry leaf :yuk:
