Pregnancy tea, or red raspberry leaf tea is fine in moderation (just like most anything else!) throughout your childbearing years. My midwives recommend drinking it throughout (up to 1-2 cups a day) until 37 weeks and then they say no limit, get as much as you want. LOL
Even my prenatal vitamin has red raspberry leaf in it as it is great at toning your uterus to prepare it for a good labor. In moderation, it shouldn't hyperstimulate the uterus.

Closer to your due date, you could double the strength and brew twice as many tea bags per cup to make it a more powerful concoction

And yes, raspberry tea (as in flavored like raspberries) is not the same thing as the red raspberry LEAF tea, which is made from the raspberry plant but not the fruit
