being consumed regularly during pregnancy, women often drink raspberry tea
during labor. This is because raspberry leaves contain an alkaloid called
fragarine, which is said to make labor easier due to its effectiveness as a
tonic for the pelvic muscles and uterus.
When taken after birthing, raspberry tea facilitates placental delivery,
helps decrease uterine swelling, and helps prevent postpartum bleeding.
Drinking raspberry tea until the time of birthing is so nutritious, it helps
to ensure that the colostrum (the first breast milk) will be especially
rich. However, it is not used excessively during lactation due to its
astringent properties that can decrease milk supply.
When menopausal women use raspberry leaf, it helps promote healthy uterine
tone and minimize hot flashes.
Henry Box, an English Quaker herbalist, said, A tea made from red raspberry
leaves is the best gift God gave to women. Now, that might be exaggerating
things a bit, but it does show great appreciation for such a versatile herb.

circumstances, to be forgiving, to love his enemy and to consider an ill-wisher as a

My first bale of The Tea lasted through most of my pregnancy. My

Pliny the Elder first wrote about Rubus Idaeus, around 50 A.D. The Roman scholar and
author of 37 books made mention of "raspberry leaf tea that is famous, soothing and
aromatic, best known as a curer of problems connected with women: frigidity, menstrual
discomfort, labour pains and difficult menopause."
The Ojibwa Indians understood the value of raspberry leaf tea also. They
knew it helped mothers have a healthy pregnancy, quick labour, a strong
baby and breastfeeding success. Today, raspberry leaves are notable partus preaparaturae,
and can be freely recommended throughout pregnancy, during birth,and while breastfeeding.
Store your tea in a tin or glass container, in your refrigerator, if you have room, or
in a cupboard. Large amounts keep very well in a freezer.
