what is it meant to do? x

It supposed to help you go into labour without going overdue but then ive also googled and it does say it can relax cervix etc and help you dilate quicker when u do go into labour not sure if its true or not i drank it last time an still went 12 days over and labour was 24 hours with ventouse delivery including episiotomy so obviously doesnt work for everyone lol Sophie 35+5 xx

hi i have read that it doesnt actually make you go into labour any earlier, but when you do go into labour, it makes it shorter as your uterus is worker better as it is stronger. i used the tablets first time, went 10 days over, but i dilated really steadily etc and had a really straightforward labour. its also good after the baby is born to help shrink your uterus back to normal x

I started on a cup a day at 32 weeks and increased it gradually.
Had to be induced early though (38 weeks) due to complications.
It took ages and ages to get things moving but then I dilated really quickly and George popped out pretty easy. The midwife was shocked how fast he arrived in the end and she said maybe it was the raspberry tea I'd been downing since I arrived at hospital!!
She was an excellent midwife so if she thinks the tea works then I'm definitely gonna drink it this time round (due August 1st, so I'll start in a couple of months
