    Default Raspberry leaf - how late is too late to start?

    I'm just on 36 weeks and had been wanting to take raspberry leaf tablets with this bub. I used them with DS from about 32 or 34 weeks.

    But I can't find it anywhere.

    I'm going to have to find a health food shop to get it. I'm sure I just bought it at a chemist or at woolies or somewhere easy last time. But no-one has any in stock.

    Is there any point in me starting now, or is it still worth while me still looking?

    What about just getting some raspberry leaf tea from the supermarket. I drank it earlier in my pregnancy but it gave me heaps of braxton hicks, so I stopped till about 36 weeks. Don't think it's ever too late, you can even have it during labour. It's don't have too much though. Think you can have 2-3 cups a day after 28 weeks, but build up to that.

    I might just have to pop back down to the shops this afternoon and have a look.

    From what I've read it usedful whenever you use it, even after birth, so I'd say hunt some down.

    I had to go to a health food shop to find the tea.

    good luck xo

    After looking in 5 or 6 different chemists, and a few different supermarkets, I finally found some. There was just one bottle on the shelf, so I grabbed them.

    Then I laughed when I realised it was the exact shop I would have bought them from when I was pg with DS, but they'd moved so I hadn't thought to go there.
