    I only ended up taking them for like 2 weeks I think!?

    I went into early labour at 39+1 then ds was born by emergency cs at 39+5.

    tbh I think the sex we had that morning got things moving along more than the raspberry leaf tablets did.

    and I ended up in emergency cs after much interventions. my labour stalled too.

    all up I'd say these were bloody hopeless in my case but I don't think I started taking them early enough.

    They are meant to make labour more efficient aren't they, not necessarily bring it on? I took them with both of mine, no idea if they worked but pushing stage was 15 minutes for both, pretty efficient I think, especially considering with dd my contractions were still 4 mins apart.

    Correct, they are supposed to tone your uterine muscles, not bring on labour.

    Yeah I still went 40+6 with dd2 but as I said in an earlier post dd2 was pushed out within 20 minutes of arriving to hospital (on arrival I was apparently 6cm dilated but she started coming next contraction like 2 minutes later).

    I did take them religiously from 32 weeks.
    @Mamasupial think positive!

    Oh yea I know it won't bring on labour. I took them last time but this time I started earlier.

    I started at 31 weeks this time. Hoping pushing stage is shorter this time. Was 45mins last time.

    sorry I realized that after I posted lol. as others have said, won't bring on labour but it's supposed to make contractions efficient. definitely did not work for me. I was admitted at 11pm on Tuesday night and 29 hours, ds was born. my labour actually stalled/stopped and I had to be induced. super fun times.
