I don't have an answer for you but I was wondering the same thing. Where did you get the tea at?

Dee, I showed my doc the tablet form of raspberry leaf that i was going to take - on the bottle it says last 3 months but my doc said to wait untill last 4 Weeks to start taking them.

I have been drinking the tea since 32 weeks - only one cup per day. Now that I am almost 35 weeks I am going to increase it to two cups a day. I got my tea at a health food store (I live in Ontario, Canada).

From what I have read and been told red raspberry leaf will not induce labor jutst tone uterus and is completely safe throughout the third trimester. It will make your contractions more efficent and could possibly make labor a little easier. Some herbalist and midwives believe it is safe thoughout pregnancy, but since there is such conflicting info I am starting it now at 29 weeks. I know many docs are against herbs totally and I am sure some just want to be very cautious because they heve no formal training in them . Good luck all.
