    I know theres another thread in Pregnancy club about this, but wondering if i will get more help in here.

    the herbalist person and holand and barratt (i know there not called that can't think of the name) recomended taking them from 32 weeks, and as my previous labour ended in Forceps, i would like all the help i can get with the 2nd stage of pregnancy, but there is so much conflicting information. Will taking them now cause me to have preterm labour? has anyone started them from 32 weeks? xx

    *Extra question*
    Does anyone know the limit of RL we can consume? i know i'm nowhere near the maxium amount yes as still a fair few weeks away! But i want to make a plan :) the tablets i'm taking are 425mg per capsual (can be opened to make a tea to drink), it says 1-2 as needed on the Jar but i'm sure i've seen people consuming more than this? Thankyou anyway x

    I started at 30 weeks (naughty me) it was only 1 cup a day and I felt nothing. They sat if your BHs get strong, stop.

    Thanks Princess :) i did want to take them earlier but didn't want to be naughty lol, mine say 1 or 2 on the packet, (capsuals) so i will probably take 1 for a couple of weeks then up it too 2, or just see how it goes! Thanks Hun xx

    I think I took 1 until 33/34 weeks upped it to 2 then at about 36 went up to 3. I also started the EPO up floof at 36 weeks. Have no baby yet do can't tell you if any of it works lol

    Mine says not to take more than 2? and its only 425mg, maybe different for different brands, i've read people taking 6 a day! Going to try try EPO aswell from 37 weeks, are the oral tablets the same as the ones that can be taken vaginally?
    I'm in no rush to get bump out... i'm full term 3 days before my LO's birthday! and would like to make the gap as big as possible lol just would like to make labour alot easier so i can get home to him :) xx

    I started taking mine at 37 weeks, in tea form. I made a pot today, 2 tea bags but at least 5 small cups of tea from it. Mind you, it doesnt seem to be doing bugger all!

    Been looking on the net and can't seem to find anything, was thinking of asking mw at my 34 wk app, but she might shout at me cause she doesn't know i've started taking them at 32 week ... x

    Found this information from http://www.pregnancy.com.au/resources/topics-of-interest/pregnancy/raspberry-leaf.shtml this website. so that would mean that 1200mg is the limit from this study? x
