My naturopath said I could start drinking red raspberry leaf tea from 28 weeks, and I think she suggested gradually increasing from 1 cup to 3 cups over that time… But I’m not sure about the other ingredients in the tea so don’t take my word as gospel! 

Although by its name it sounds like it must be safe for the whole third trimester, or they’d be risking major law suits!!

My midwife said that I could start it any time. She said that it’s a myth that it induces early labour. The “contractions” it causes are braxton hicks, which is how it tones the uterus. I started at 22w and I’m at 31w now with no problems.
