Raspberry Leaf Tea doesn't induce labor. It's a uterine toner that caused the uterine muscle to flex and become stronger and more efficient. Yes those are contractions technically but not the kind that will dilate your cervix. Drinking enough of it will also help the cervix thin out and soften. The whole idea is that when you do go into labor on your own, your contractions will be more productive in getting you dilated faster and make the second stage of labor shorter.

Daven Originally Answered: Have you taken Raspberry leaf tea? If so.?
Hi, I drank it with my first baby from about 34 weeks. My midwife actually told me to start drinking it then (I hadnt heard of it) He was two days overdue but I had a really quick manageable labour (My waters broke at 4.30pm and he was delivered at 9.05pm). I don't know whether the raspberry tea had anything to do with that but I am not chancing fate so I have been drinking it from about 32 weeks with baby no.2. Started with 2 cups a day, now drinking 3. (I'm 37 weeks now). Strangly though this time when I asked my midwife about it (a different one from first time around), she actually said "We are not supposed to recommend you take anything like that anymore". Although she admitted she had done with her own children - confusing or what!!. It didnt do me any harm first time around so I am continuing to drink it.

I was just looking this up because I had an idea but just wanted to check. It says you can start drinking it from 32 weeks :) I think I remember seeing this on a tea shop packet too. I suppose you have an appointment with your midwife in 4 weekish so you could probably ask her about it then to ask if 32 weeks is ok? :) I have heard so many good things about it, I know my friend used it with all 4 of her pregnancies and loved it. I think she would start at around 34 weeks, drinking one a day and building up as time goes on... I am very much looking forward to trying it too. Hope that helps a little. Sorry I don't have personal experience with it. I will hopefully in 12 weeks! :) Hope all goes well

first of your only 34 weeks so why do you want to induce labour already. You still have a few weeks to go. Second it actually takes a signifiant amount of tea to induce labour. But raspberry tea is benifical. I drank it my last trimestor a cup a day. It is supposed to help with labour couldn't tell you how but it does.

not sure if it is of any help in inducing labor. but i would avoid any such things unless recommended by a doctor.

Wynne Originally Answered: Red Raspberry Leaf Tincture?
I use Thomas Red Raspberry Leaves Syrup which I am assuming would be a weaker solution than a tincture. The directions on my bottle say 1 to 2 teaspoons per 20 pounds daily. I breed small Yorkies. I first learned about it because my daugther is a midwife and uses it in humans. In over 20 years I have never had a C-section and only 1 puppy that died shortly after birth. I have never had it cause premature labor. I have heard that if you use it before pregnancy or during the first week it could cause failure of attachment to the uterine wall since it strengthens these muscles. I begin using it about 3 or 4 weeks before delivery. Edit: I will also add I have never had any problems with milk production and my females recover very quickly and do not have any coat loss. Labors are 2 hours or less from the first contraction to the last (3 puppies) and my females are also 4 pounds. My bottle doesn't show any mg. information. I did some research and only found one entry for using the tincture that included a dosage, but doesn't state how many mg. it contains. Here is the info. I found, from a pet site selling the extract sounds like 1 drop would be more than sufficient and may even be too strong. Red Raspberry Extract 2 oz.(Reference #722G) Used as a basic herbal formula for all female organs - Strengthens the uterine walls & entire female reproductive system. Tones before & after whelping - Will increase milk production and flow - Assists labor, generally making labor pains milder, delivery easier & will help lessen after pains. Should be used throughout the entire gestation period and into the whelping period. Normal dosage 3 drops per 50 lbs of body weight once daily.
