  • I did have some toward the end. It's generally regarded as a safe method of trying to encourage labor, although only mildly effective. I wouldn't try anything before 37 weeks, for Baby's sake.

  • I've heard it can induce labor, if you drink it constantly.

  • Red raspberry leaf tea is overall good for the reproductive system. It only mildly affects induction of labor. i wouldn't be too concerned.
