    clary Sage like rasberry leaf tea causes risk of miscarage during the firth 20 weeks of pregnancy as it can stimulate contractions, but you can use them at the end to start contractions. I think you can use either as they both do the same thing, and that will save you money. My midwife actually recomends taking rasberry leaf tablets from 36+ weeks as it helps condition the uterus for labour.

    yeah, your supposed to avoid it because its menna help start you off in labour. and if your not near your due date then its not smart lol. thats why your not menna take it into hospital because it can start other women off in premature labour... thats whats made me think its quite effective.

    Hi playmate,
    I had anti-natal last night and asked the midwife about it, she recomended it at 38+ weeks in your bath along with lavender clary sage can indeed bring on contractions and lavender is soothing and relaxing. clary Sage should never be used in early pregnancy because it causes the uterus to contract and therefore can cause a miscarrage.

    Never ever use that stuff. It can cause the baby to get distresssed and open it's bowels. They will be able to tell if you have taken this stuff and don't think they will be too impressed!
