Raspberry Leaf Tea is a tasty herbal tea drunk by mothers-to-be in the last three months of pregnancy as they prepare for giving birth - that special, wonderful day! It can also be drunk after the big day during the months when you are breastfeeding and trying to get back to your old self and shape. Although life will never be the same again!
• Tones and strengthens
• Helps prepare for birth
• Restores tone after the birth
Raspberry leaf is best taken as a warm, but not too hot infusion. Although traditionally mothers have drunk a cupful a day from the third month, current safety advice recommends that raspberry leaf tea is not drunk until the last trimester.
From month six you can drink up to three cups per day. Use one generous teaspoon per cup.
Raspberry leaf tea can also be enjoyed by dad and children over five (half a cup) and is a great alternative to squashes or sweet drinks.
Organic Red Raspberry leaf - Rubus ideus
Put one teaspoon of the herb in a small teapot of boiling water. Allow to steep for 5-10 minutes. Strain and add honey to sweeten if desired.
Also drink Raspberry leaf after birth as it is thought to tone and strengthen the pelvic tissues, helping the uterus to contract. Raspberry leaf is also one of the ingredients in our Precious Cuddles: Nursing Tea.
After your baby is born you can also combine 1/3 raspberry leaf with 1/3 nettle leaf and 1/3 alfafa tops to make a delicious tea that will help you to beat the baby blues and feel refreshed and on top of things.
When you are pregnant, you should only drink this tea in the last 3 months of pregnancy and after birth. Raspberry leaf should NOT be taken by women in the first 6 months of pregnancy. If you are not sure if this tea is suitable for you, or you have had complications during your pregnancy, ask your healthcare practitioner first before drinking this tea.
Our raspberry leaf is grown on organic farms to certified organic standards. As the supply varies according to the season and availability, we use several farms with different certifying bodies which is why the pack does not carry the logo of a certifying body.
