Thank you for this thread was just about to ask the same thing
I'm 30 weeks Thursday the doctor I saw Monday had no clue what I was talking about. I had a 26 hour labour last time and am willing to do anything to help it be a much better experience this time.
So curious to know I think if anyone started experiencing braxton hick more often after starting on the tablets or tea I think that's what's going on going to ring my midwife today depending on replys.
The doctor I advised that I was starting to take them didn't seem overly interested and said it was up to me but know there isn't much re search. I'm thinking in my head if these are braxton hick it's my body's way of slowly making them more regular. Bub curls up into a little hard ball which had been happening before I took them but I could normally rub my belly and it would stop and he would move again but now that's not the case.
You get BH all throughout pregnancy, just not everyone feels them.
As with everything, it may work for some, and not for others.
Mum took them on all 5 of us and had vastly different experiences
Just giving this thread a bumpity bump rather than starting my own, I've been reading a bit about raspberry leaf today and thought I'd get some tonight, wondering if anyone else has experiences to share about whether they thought they worked? I haven't run it past my midwife or Dr but from everything I've read there doesn't seem to be any significant side effects. I'm almost 32 weeks. Is one more effective than the other in terms of tea or tablets?
Thanks ladies :-)
I suggest the tablets. The tea apparently is revolting lol.
Oh dear, checked this post just before I walked into the healthfood store and had no responses so got the tea, and now am at this point and see your responses about the tea being gross. Let's see how it goes haha IMG_1486031049.572799.jpg
