I was just 2 days past my due date and was so ready to get the show on the road. I was walking like crazy and then I googled how to get labor going. There is was "try drinking red raspberry leaf tea." I was working from home at that point and had to interview someone over the phone. We talked for hours and the entire time I was brewing and drinking raspberry tea. I drank a lot of it. The next morning, I woke up around 6a...hungry, so I had some toast and juice. I felt different but didn't say anything to my husband. Then I went back to bed and work up at 9:40a. I stood up out of bed and splash...my water broke...soaked my PJs. I didn't start contracting till around 3:30p. I had acupuncture at 4:30p. Active labor came on strong by 5:30p. Our dd was born at home at 10:11p. Who knows, but I believe in raspberry tea now! :)
That's where I was planning on buying mine!
And I loved this post about RRL tea- and how to make brew it so it's most effective :) I need to get on buying mine!
