  • raspberry ice tea just has the flavor from the berries in it, it doesn't have the rasspberry leaves in it, they are the part that effects the uterus, but I was told not to drink raspberry leave tea while pregnant because it can cause you to go into early labor.

  • Red raspberry is one of the herbs used in pregnancy and menstration for pain. It is safe for pregnancy, however the raspberry tea you purchase in the stores has no real berries in it.

  • Love Love Love raspberry tea. I love all teas tho so I still drink them all in pregnancy. I would get the raspberry leaf tea and make it liek you would ice tea. Of course you have to make it hot first then cool it off. Still tastes great.
