Raspberry Leaf is recommended from week 32 of pregnancy (not before!) to help tone your pelvic and uterine muscles in preparation for labour. There is some evidence to suggest that drinking raspberry leaf tea reduces the likelihood of interventions and reduces the length of your labour.
It is also contains a rich assortment of vitamins including vitamin B complex, calcium, iron, magnesium and fragarine. You can start with one cup of tea per day and gradually increase to three.
As always, if you are unsure or worried about your pregnancy or labour, or experiencing contractions after drinking raspberry leaf tea, please see your healthcare professional.
Why we love Mama Body Tea
Our team at Milk and Love specialises in finding beautiful family run businesses that are creating high quality products for mums and babies for you to enjoy. Mama Body Tea is a beautiful Australian business created by Jessica Spencer in 2012 when she became a mother and wanted to find a natural way to help with settling her babies upset tummy, and then to help boost her own Milk Supply. Jessica worked with Herbalist and Naturopath Anne Cousins to develop a range of beautiful herbal teas especially for Mum's. Jessica's friend, Jess O'Brien later joined the business, and the two friends have worked tirelessly to create the brand that Mama Body Tea is today.
