Have you heard about the positive effects of drinking raspberry tea during pregnancy?
A friend of mine says she drank it during her pregnancy and noticed some positive physical effects. In fact, I read an article that explains that Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) actually tones the uterus, improves contractions and decreases constipation!
The article explains that it is especially helpful in the 3rd trimester. However, some believe that it may be linked to miscarriage if it is consumed during the first trimester. As a result, the article states that in order to "play it safe" its best to wait until you're 36 weeks along before you begin to drink it.
You can read the entire article here.
