Why can’t I take Rasberry leaf whilst pregnant

Hey guys

I’m just wondering if anyone could help. I have endometriosis and am 35 weeks pregnant. I have heard that Rasberry leaf tea/tablets are good for pregnancy and also good for endometriosis but I have just come across something saying you shouldn’t take Rasberry leaf whilst pregnant if you suffer with endometriosis.. does anyone know why this is??

Hello lovely,

I've not heard anything about this so I was interested and had a little google.

I found this....


I hope this helps, there's lots on Google about it.

Good luck xx

It actually brings on contractions. When I was overdue it helps to move things along. Still had to be induced but it is not safe to use it until full term.


Causes miscarriage..


How would it cause a miscarriage? It shouldn’t be taken that early in pregnancy?
