It doesn't induce labor, it just causes contractions. And it's anything with real raspberry in it. The contractions won't necessarily put you into labor, but you'll get the pain still.

AnswerIt actually ripens your cervix getting it ready for the birth. I have been taking it for a few weeks now and nothing has happened yet. I am 39 weeks and 3 days. Everyone is different. Answeri was wondering if you mixed the raspberry thing and the castor stuff together would that induce labor earlier. i am a mother of three with another on the way and i cant stand being pregnant anymore. i just feel awful. by the way i am 36 weeks along. and my youngest is only nine months old. please let me know if that would do anything AnswerI would not advise you to try and go into labor at 36 weeks as your baby will be too premature to go home immediately so you will either have to stay in hospital with it or make daily trips, both difficult with three others.

From 37 weeks an infusion of raspberry leaf tea will not make you go into labour but when labour does start it makes it more efficient.


I have PCOS which means I don't have my periods regularly, about 3 times a YEAR...and so therefore I am no ovulating. I had my first daughter in 2002, it then took me 6 years to have my second child in 2008! I had started taking red raspberry in the pill form, and after the first two weeks I started having a period. Then I found the liquid form, and had two squirts each morning ( in a cup of OJ) It taste horrible! But 3 months later I was pregnant! So yes it works. In fact I stopped taking it cause I am not yet ready for another baby. But once in awhile I will take it to bring on a period to "cleanse" myself.

I did not have any side effects that were bad, just helps with your hormones in a natural way. I had a period, ovulated, and I also got acne, but that is because it brought on my hormones. I recommend the liquid form, you can find it in the natural section of a grocery store, they are about $10 for a bottle.

It's good to take throughout the pregnancy ( helps form the uterus walls and get ready for labor) it helps after giving birth to heal. It is basically a wonder NATURAL drug for women. If your having heavy periods, no periods, painful periods, you should take this. I am NOT a doctor, I speak from experience for when I use it and my sister-in-law uses it.

Good luck!

iam 34 pregnant when should i start and take raspberry leaf herbal capsules

AnswerRaspberry Leaf tea is not for induction of labor. It's great to drink during your third trimester, however, to tone the uterus. It's said to aid in having better, more effective contractions and quicker labor. It is not dangerous and the recommendation is three cups a day from the start of your third trimester to be best effective.

you can have sex, take long walks, take red raspberry leaf capsules, evening primrose oil, castor oil(i would do that last), get your membranes swept. theres so many ways, talk with your midwife about them.

yes it does and by the way do you like potatoes because i love them

you can buy raspberry leaf tea from holland and barret

No, Red Raspberry is artificial flavored. Red Rasberry Leaf Tea is made organically.

Raspberry leaf tea can help pregnant women go into labour quicker. Raspberry leaf acts as a muscle toner, strengthening the uterus and preparing it for birth.However, it is very important to note that raspberry leaf tea should not be drunk before 32 weeks, as it can otherwise lead to premature labour and miscarriage.

It really worked for me! Within a week I was thinned and had contractions 3 minutes apart! I was 37 weeks and had a 7lb 15oz healthy little boy with no complications at all! My labor pains were minimal. I believe that the raspberry leaf tea that I had throughout the pregnancy played a part of that as well. Heather Barnes

I personally have never heard that raspberry leaf tea helps during labour, however it is widely used during the later stages of pregnancy to prevent women going over their due date.

drink red raspberry leaf tea, go for walks, have intercourse.

Some "red raspberry teas" are black tea (regular tea leaves) with raspberry fruit or fruit flavoring. "Red raspberry leaf tea" is made from the leaves of the red raspberry plant, not regular tea leaves. Read the box carefully; look for the ingredients.

Yes, actually, you will get high from it.

With both my pregnancies raspberry tea leaf tea helps alot!! It cant however be raspberry flavoring it has to be the leaf so check the box or bottle.

Raspberry leaf tea can be made by adding 1 tsp of the leaf to one cup of boiling water. The leaf should be infused for 10 min and then strained. The infusion can be taken once or twice a day.

The Raspberry leaf contains tantin,oxalic acid and pectin. and used as astringent,decongestant and opthalmic use.Raspberry leaves mixed with blackberry leaves can be brewed as coffee or tea.

There is 3 common names for the raspberry 1.Raspberry 2.Raspberry Leaf 3.Red Rasberry Those are the most common. :)

Most likely in a health food store.

Raspberry leaf tea is known to have many medicinal and health related benefits. It is known to help pregnant women with morning sickness and pregnancy issues. The Vitamin Shop has many products which one can find. Many pregnancy sites have information on the effects of raspberry leaf tea as well.

no. one is redAnswerIn my experience, both names are used synonymously and refer to the leaves of rubus idaeus being used to make tea.

Nope. But red raspberry leaf tea will tone your uterus to help get it ready for the work of labor. My midwife has had me drinking it my entire pregnancy. One tip: be sure to leave it to brew at least 2-3 hours in order to get the medicinal properties out of it.

Yep it's actually good but the smoke is harsh

I've never heard of inducing labor through tea, but... who knows, I guess that since there are certain chemicals that can induce labor (i.e. Castor oil, or natural oxytocin) but I think that only rose-hip tea has castor, and only sexual means (usually via intercourse or nipple stimulation) causes oxytocin releases... My guess is that jasmine tea'd be fine, but one would need to consult their doctor (OB-GYN, family dr, etc...) first. There are certain herbs that should be avoided during pregnancy but jasmine is not one. Raspberry leaf tea is traditionally drank to help contractions but it does not induce labor in itself. Castor oil works by stimulating the bowel by causing diarrhea, the motions of which can stimulate the cervix into contracting.

they will eat leaves from eucalyptus, wattle, rose, gum and raspberry.

Raspberry leaves have many uses.It is used as an astringent,for decongestions and opthalmic use. It is brewed as tea or mixed with blackberry leaves to brew a type of alternative coffee drink.
