I have been reading up a lot on trying for a vbac and easy labor/delivery. I read about Raspberry Leaf Tea and have started having it 27 weeks onwards. However, today I read on a website that Raspberry leaf tea should be avoided if you have had a previous c section or if you are expecting twins. I have had 2 c sections and am expecting twins this time. I have read of many women who have had this tea despite these 2 conditions. But would like to know if there is anything really harmful in it?
Also, What are Braxton Hicks really? I have been having this tightening of tummy from 23 or so weeks onwards ( I am 29 weeks now ), and it hurts. I get a period like cramps and my belly gets so stiff. Is this Braxton?
