Herb Lore Organic Red Raspberry Leaf Tea
Red Raspberry Leaf – tones uterus and muscles of the pelvic region. It is highly nutritive. Helps to prevent miscarriage and hemorrhage due to an atonic or relaxed uterus, eases morning sickness, and reduces pain during labor and after birth. Does not strengthen or start contractions, but allows contracting uterus to work more effectively, making birth easier and faster. It also assists in the production of plentiful breast milk.
NOTE: Some sources claim that Red Raspberry Leaf can start uterine contractions. This is a falsehood. Red Raspberry Leaf is one of the most widely used and safest of all the uterine/pregnancy tonic herbs. It contains fragrine, an alkaloid which gives tone to the muscles of the pelvic region, including the uterus itself, but does not stimulate the uterus or cause contractions. It does not even strengthen contractions during labor, but it does allow the contracting uterus to work in a more efficient and effective way, and thus, may make birth easier and faster.
