We all want healthy female reproductive systems, right? I know I do.
Raspberry leaf tea is said to help tone the uterus, improve contractions during birthing and decreases constipation. Well this all sounds good to me. While used primarily during pregnancy, it can also be effective to help women looking to get pregnant.
I drank A LOT of raspberry leaf tea while pregnant with my first baby, and was able to have a non-complicated natural birth. I’m not sure if it directly helped, but I’m willing to try again on this pregnancy. Fall is the perfect time to harvest the raspberry leaves, so I took advantage of the bushes growing at my parents house to harvest some. My mother-in-law Janice was also willing to furnish me with a couple of jars as well, so I sh0uld be well supplied.
Making this tea is as simple as picking the leaves, drying them, and then steeping them in boiling water. So if you are pregnant or wanting to get pregnant and have access to any raspberry bushes, I highly suggest making some of your own!
