Raspberry Leaf tea is a very well-known and frequently used herb for childbirth, used for many centuries as a partus prepator. This means it helps to tone and prepare the uterus for labour. Raspberry leafs use as a partus preparatory can be attributed to its action on smooth muscle. It has both the ability to stimulate contraction and act as an antispasmodic, which aids in the relaxation of muscle. This amazing balancing act means that Raspberry leaf has a regulating act on contractions, making them more efficient and co-ordinated yet reducing their frequency. This means a potential reduction in labour time, smoother birth process and a decreased need for medical intervention. Additional actions as an astringent (tightens and tones tissue), helps to reduce bleeding after birth and aid recovery time.
Raspberry leaf tea is safe for use in the third trimester, often used from 32 weeks onwards with the dosage increasing. For guidance on dosage please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
