    When can you start drinking this? I read somewhere that it's from 32 weeks but I thought it was later than that. Also, how much?

    It helps the uterus and in turn helps you in labour.. well it can do :)

    I used to take it in tablet form for my periods and it was very good :)

    It is supposed to shorten the second stage of labour, I love it MMmmmmm

    I think it is supposed to be ok from 32 weeks as it is not supposed to induce labour but some people advise wait until week 36 or 37

    i been reading about this loads, and some site say u can take in 1st trimester to stop morning sickness? it cant make ur body do any thing its not ready to do.

    i just brought some tablets and they say on the bottle to take from 28 weeks to prepare cervix for labour and make labour easier.

    so ive started this weekend and i take 1800mg a day.

    I am taking it in tablet form too and have been since just before 36 weeks.

    Whether it will help or not is another question but no harm in trying I say! :D

    I started taking the capsules from about 36/37 weeks with james. Hard to say if it helped. He was born at 38 weeks after a 14 hour labour.
    Might give them ago again this time.

    I've read before that raspberry leaf can cause the risk of miscarriage if taken in first tri :think:

    Im taking it in tablet form as was told the tea was gross.
    Its half price in Holland and barratt at the mo. Only £3 odd for 100 tablets. You take 2, 3 times a day.
    Its meant to make the pelvis joints more subtle and can help labour pains and speed. :D

    Mine are from Bio-health. They are 900mg but you only take 1 twice a day.

    I opted for a higher dose tablet as I am useless at remembering to take them :roll:
