Literally that's all I would like to know. I'm Due on the 8th August which makes me 39wks and 2 days at the time of written this post. I have no intentions of trying to induce labour until I have gone past the 40 week mark. I just want some information on what raspberry leaf tea does because I cant really find out what it does people just seem to be recommending it.
So if any one could help that would be lovely

Raspberry leaf tea is used to soften the cervix & tone the muscles of your uterus so they work more efficiently & supposedly make labour smoother & possibly shorten the 2nd stage but it doesn't bring on labour. It's best to start taking small doses from around 34 weeks & gradually build up the amount you take.
