Questions about Fenugreek and Red Raspberry Leaf teas, in last month of pregnancy.
i try my best to keep things natural, and always have medicinal herbs stored and ready. i am in the last month of pregnancy.
and i have fenugreek tea and red raspberry tea in my cabinet waiting.
i know the fenugreek helps with milk production, and was traditionally used to bring on childbirth, but it seems to have some risks associated with it during pregnancy.
but what i would like to know is. are the risks because it can cause uterine contractions? or could it like, stop the babies heart or something? essentially, would it be safe to start drinking in the last week of pregnancy? because if it helps to speed things along i a not sure i would be against that, as long as it was safe!
the red raspberry leaf i *thought* was supposed to help soften your cervix, but just re-reading up on it i am sure it is safe to drink.
