I lurk in here from time to time since technically I am due in October (30th). And I've read a few who drink red raspberry leaf tea. I've been taking the red raspberry leaf capsules since 32 weeks but I only take 2 pills per day as bottle instructions (approximately 900mg) but I was wondering if this is enough or if I should bump up the dosage being 35 weeks now? I don't see a midwife, but a group of doctors that don't seem to be very helpful in anything of that nature.

I am not help as I am doing the tea. I started drinking 2-3 cups a day at 35 weeks and have bumped it up to 4 now. I would personally up the dose and see how you feel. From my understanding, RRL is a tonic and you need to work up. 35 weeks sounds like a good time to add another, maybe add more at 37 weeks.

Thanks! I think I'll do that. I read about people drinking cups upon cups of the tea so I was thinking surely 2 pills isn't enough.
