Has anyone taken the Red Raspberry Leaf capsules instead of the tea. How many per day? I have 480 mg capsules. I am not good about drinking the tea consistently. I am 36.5 weeks.

I did tea and capsules. I started the tea (not straight raspberry leaf but I pregnancy mix from my midwife) around 28 weeks. I started taking the capsules at 36 weeks. I think I started taking 2 a day and was up to 4 or 6 by the time I had my daughter at exactly 39 weeks. It is a good idea to take them for a week or 2 after delivery also to help tone your uterus back up. From what I remember about it you need to gradually work up. I would start with 2 a day when you are 37 weeks then 3 at 38 and 4 at 39+
