    Is Raspberry Leaf really good for natural delivery?

    I have heard that taking raspberry leaf supplement a few weeks before birth will make it easier. Has anyone tried it or any comments?

    I'm a first time mom and I am really afraid of pain although I have opted for natural delivery. My due date is next week so I should start taking it now if it is really helpful!

    I didn’t use raspberry leaf tea for my pregnancies but I used it when I was a teenager for painful period pains. I think it helped but it might have been the placebo effect.

    I have had four births. I found that the pain is bearable but I always got to the point where I was scared that if it got any worse I wouldn’t be able to cope, however, it never got any worse.

    I found the transition stage the worse and found it really helpful for the midwife to remind me that I was in the transition stage and that soon it would all be over. In fact for my later births I wrote this in my birth plan so that I wouldn’t forget to remember to ask the midwife to remind me about the transition stage.

    Good luck with everything,
    Barb

    My Dr recommends patients take it too. It's also supposed to help bring on labor.

    Good luck!

    I bought some'pregnancy tea' in Bumps to Babes that has raspberry leaf in it. It's quite expensive but very nice!

    Not sure if city super might do it as they have lots of herbal teas.

    Happybilly - with my first I was really scared of the pain and am again this time. I had an epidural the first time and plan to do that again this time - it was fantastic.

    Organic raspberry tea leaf can be bought Green Concepts Co Ltd at the basement of Luk Hoi Tong Building, 31, Queen's Road Central. I believe that it can also be bought at Bumps to Babes.
