The leaves of the raspberry plant have been used as a medicinal herb for centuries. They are thought to have many varied properties including those that are beneficial for pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding.
Raspberry leaf tea is nutrient rich and contains many of the vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy pregnancy including vitamins A, C, E and B, magnesium, calcium and iron. The magnesium content and the alkaloid 'fragine' are said to be especially helpful in strengthening the uterine muscles, helping them to contract more efficiently during labour.
Consuming raspberry leaf tea is thought not only to help mother and baby to get all the nutrients they need but also to help to replenish a new mothers stores after the birth. Sipping raspberry leaf tea during and after the birth is also said to help the uterus contract back down to size, reduce after birth bleeding and help initiate the let down of breastmilk.
Many practitioners recommend that drinking raspberry leaf tea is best commenced at 32 weeks of pregnancy and continued through to the birth.

This tea tastes amazing, its like juice! Soothes and calms, while I also feel a little more alert after drinking it. Very refreshing and warming, I think my son would enjoy this cooled as a juice treat too!
