Red Raspberry Leaf otherwise known as rubus ideaus, has been used since the sixth century for medicinal purposes and since the 1940's for western medical practices as a uterine tonic.
What does it do? The common thought is that Raspberry Leaf in the form of tea or tablets can reduce the labour time for pregnant women. It is a uterine tonic and helps tone the uterus in preparation for labour. It may also help with reducing nausea and morning sickness and can promote better circulation (helping with those puffy ankles). Following birth it can also be used to help the uterus shrink back down, boost your immune system and also assist with milk supply.
