Both of my two were born at 39 weeks spontaneous vaginal deliveries i wouldnt say the labours were quicker as there can be many factors that influence labour but for me i belive the tea helped my cervix rippen and encourage labour to start.
Both of my children were engaged from 30 weeks as well and this little one is no different.
So for me i think it works it didnt cause me any adverse reactions at all and i started drinking from 30 weeks starting at 1 cup a day for the first week leading up to 3 cups a day to the stage i am at now 35 weeks.
Give it a go its not the greatest taste i add a little honey and this makes it tolerable for me and it cant hurt.
Good luck and let me know how you go:)
It won't induce labour, however what it is meant to do is tone your uterus so that contractions are more effective, which can make labour more quicker (but not always). For instance, I dilated from 0-10cm in only 2 hours because my contractions and uterus were so effective. I believe raspberry leaf was a contributing factor to this. Your uterus is a big muscle that works better if toned (like any muscle would).
This will also help return your uterus back to its pre-pregnancy state a lot quicker because again, your uterus contracts to make itself smaller.
So go ahead and try it, it certainly can't hurt.
I agree a bit of honey makes it easier to drink.
According to the lady at the health food shop the tea is better then the tablets. also cheaper smile

Just 24 hours after having bub my tummy looked as if I had never been preg. Dr also commented on how 'fit' I must of been because of how quickly my muscle's returned to normal.
(is he serious - only exersise I did was getting up from the couch to change channel! LOL )
i swear to you my experience is all down to the tea.
I was told it won't hurt bub, so anything that helps us through labour/preg/post preg is worth a go.
Good luck with everything girls,
