Hi hunibuni - i searched high and low to find raspberry leaf tea in supermarkets with no luck, but i found some fruit tea by Tetleys (Summer Merry Berry) which has raspberry in it, along with other fruits. I drink it quite a lot as it actually does taste nice!
I did read that raspberry can help reduce risk of miscarriage, but not sure what it does other than that.

I got mine from holland and barratt I was told not to use it untill 34 wks as it can cause premature labour. Its to help the uterus contract I think and deffo would not use it in the early stages unless your midwife has said you can!

I got mine from health shop in tablet form because couldn't face drinking the tea. Back of my bottle says not to be taking b4 30weeks been taking it for 4 days and if anything it seems to have weakened the episode of braxton hicks that I was having prior to starting them. Lisa 38+5 weeks xxx

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
